A group of out-of-state fast food workers are set to receive thousands of dollars of unpaid wages. The decision comes after an investigation by the U.S. Department of Labor determined that the company underpaid its workers. While this particular issue took place in a different state, these types of employment law violations are sadly not uncommon in Wisconsin.
SM Choi Inc. runs four different fast food establishments, although it is not clear how many people the company employs. However, at multiple locations it paid both cooks and cashiers flat salaries rather than the hourly wage that these types of workers typically receive. This ultimately resulted in workers being underpaid for their work, as the salaries did not reflect their hours worked.
