I had someone come to my office today and complain that he never received his last paycheck. The paycheck was for less than $500.00 for some part-time work. When he came into my office, he asked if I could help him and if his case was really worth my time.
I responded that I routinely help people just like him who didn’t timely receive their last paychecks. I consider the failure to pay a last paycheck as the failure to pay minimum wages.
