Fight Wage Theft at the National Guard
Dorothy Staub is a Family Assistance Center Specialist for the National Guard. She helps our veterans and their families in the most dire of circumstances. When her contract was up, she and 500 others were laid off, but about a month later, she got her job offered back to her at nearly half the amount she was making before. This blatant wage theft doesn't just hurt Dorothy - it's a slap in the face to our servicemembers and their families. Good Jobs Nation is now filing a national legal complaint on behalf of caseworkers like Dorothy who save servicemembers' lives.
Will President Trump keep his promises to military families?
"As a nation, we depend on federal contractors to do all of this. Yet in his first 100 days, President Trump has rolled back living wages and other protections for federal contract workers. That’s not just a slap in the face to those workers — it’s a slap in the face to all of the military members, veterans and families who rely on us for support."
The Washington Post
"In fact, in some counties, Cognitive has offered below the meager minimum for that more junior-level occupation. That is according to workers I interviewed as well as a Labor Department complaint filed Monday by Good Jobs Nation, a group that advocates on behalf of government contract employees."
Workers who provide services to veterans and their families just took a pay cut
"And actually an outside organization, Good Jobs Nation, they advocate basically on behalf of government contract workers, have filed a complaint with the Labor Department, asking the Labor Department to investigate and look into whether these people are misclassified. If indeed they were, they would be owed back pay of course and potentially get a raise."
