With support from the Rockefeller Foundation and [in collaboration with] the Center for Urban Pedagogy (CUP), New Immigrant Community Empowerment (NICE) published a comic book [in Spanish] that informs day laborers of their rights and how to protect themselves from wage theft [read more on CUP’s website].

NICE strives to end wage theft, a systemic problem faced by hundreds of immigrants in the Big Apple.

“Many workers experience this kind of problem and unfortunately, most of them don’t know where to turn or how to deal with wage theft,” said Valeria Treves, executive director of NICE.

Treves explained that the project aims to prevent more undocumented immigrants, mostly Latinos who recently arrived in the U.S., from becoming victims of employers who routinely steal their salaries.

The guide provides advice in a simple, entertaining format using language that is easy to understand. It also gives tips for staying healthy and safe in the workplace, and valuable information on city regulations established by the New York State Department of Labor.

Starting this month, NICE will distribute copies in various parts of the city, such as in Queens, where wage theft is a recurring problem.

To obtain a copy, visit the NICE office in Queens at 37-41 77th St. on the second floor.
