Chicago, IL – Eight Little Village Car Wash workers in Chicago expecting to get $262,000 in owed wages discovered Thursday the car wash is filing for bankruptcy to avoid paying the wages owed.
After a three and a half year campaign to reclaim the stolen wages, the workers find themselves at the beginning of another legal battle.
The workers won their claim in the Illinois Department of Labor in 2013, but the employer didn't pay. Illinois' Attorney General sued but the last minute bankruptcy filing means the workers still aren't getting the money that they're owed.
