Restaurant Workers Among the Most Abused.

In fiscal year 2006, the Department of Labor collected nearly $50.6 million in back wages for approximately 86,700 workers in "low-wage industries." What industry made up the bulk of the violations? The restaurant industry.

Although the statistics are drawn from the entire nation, I know it is no different in Maryland since this firm (and several of my colleagues) have pursued claims on behalf of servers, kitchen workers, and custodial employees.
