Working at the car wash — for tips

Last year we wrote about wage theft at car washes – “it’s almost an industry standard,” one labor advocate said – as an example of the many ways we unknowingly encounter the phenomenon of wage theft in our daily lives.

On Tuesday, clergy and community supporters will visit a car wash owner on behalf of a former employee who says that he was paid only in tips.

Arise Chicago workers center has made numerous attempts to meet with the business owner.  Tuesday at 3:15 p.m. they will hold a press conference in a nearby parking lot at 2551 W. Cermak and then try to meet with the boss.
