    Statement by Councilmember Tim Burgess regarding allegations of wage theft on City-financed projects

    Seattle City Councilmember Tim Burgess, sponsor of Seattle’s 2011 wage theft law, issued the following statement regarding the allegations of wage theft on Seattle Housing Levy-financed projects:

    "Theft of wages is as malicious a crime as any other theft. It takes money directly from the pockets of workers and their families. The allegations of wage theft on City-financed projects must be taken seriously and investigated thoroughly by the police department and other relevant law enforcement agencies."
