Wage theft is a serious problem in Cook County. According to the University of Illinois – Chicago’s Center for Urban Economic Development, Cook County residents are cheated out of $1Millon in wages each day. Roberto Maldonado, Alderman of the 26th Ward said, "This free clinic will help our residents get the money they've earned from their hard work and loyalty."
The Chicago Wage Theft Clinic has succeeded in getting back thousands of unpaid dollars by assembling a team of attorneys and law students to provide free advice to workers weekly at the John Marshall Law School.
Every Monday evening this team helps workers get their back wages. Call 773-998-1320 to make an appointment or simply walk in.
