Rampant wage theft at construction projects across California and the country has resulted in countless crime scenes where workers experience miscarriages of justice. Construction Wage Watch – an initiative of Carpenters Local 46 – is fighting for workers seeking justice by shedding light on these crimes while uplifting worker voices and stories. By sharing these experiences of injustice with other workers, the public, and elected officials we are highlighting those crime scenes of the past, while bringing change to this remorselessly toxic business culture.
Construction Wage Watch has Case Files where crimes against workers - such as wage theft and worker misclassification - have already been perpetrated, as well as Ongoing Investigations we are closely monitoring to ensure any crimes committed against workers are properly adjudicated.

Construction Wage Watch encourages anyone experiencing similar conditions to those described in these Case Files to be brave like workers on these construction projects and raise your voice for justice! There are many resources and activists dedicated to fighting for you. Please share your story with us and remember that there is strength and power in numbers!
