Voters overwhelmingly approved increasing the state’s minimum wage to a dollar above the federal amount in 2006.  If employers provided health care, they were exempt from paying the higher minimum wage. Last week, we learned that giant corporations were skirting this law with impunity.

Fat cat lobbyists for big business subverted the will of the people by inserting the word “offer” instead of “provide” health care in the minimum wage regulations. So a corporation can offer health care at a price workers can’t afford, and exempt itself from paying the extra dollar an hour for minimum wage!

Sign the petition below to tell Governor Sandoval to investigate wage theft:

 

 

Governor Brian Sandoval:

 

We, the undersigned, respectfully demand an investigation whether the State Labor Commissioner acted unlawfully by not implementing Nevada’s minimum wage law, overwhelmingly approved by voters in 2006.

 

As you know, a recent lawsuit filed on behalf of minimum wage workers states that your administration has neither enforced nor monitored this law. As a result, Nevada’s wealthiest corporations have stolen millions of dollars of wages from our lowest paid workers.

 

We ask you to please use the full force of your office to remedy this situation immediately. 

 

Thank you,
