“Although Antonio Vanegas, an undocumented immigrant from Guatemala, has worked in food service at the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center in Washington, D.C. for three years, his immigration status only recently came under scrutiny.
For the last several years, Antonio’s employer, Quick Pita, has been stealing his wages. They’ve used the standard tactics: paying less than the minimum wage and denying overtime pay.
Like many undocumented workers, Antonio found himself in a difficult position. He could silently suffer the injustice of wage theft or he could speak out and risk deportation.”
