Moss on Whitmer plan to battle wage theft, protect workers

LANSING — Sen. Jeremy Moss (D–Southfield) has issued the following statement on Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s State of the State address, during which she spoke about her support for a legislative plan to tackle wage theft, which resulted in Michigan workers losing out on $429 million over a two-year period, according to the Economic Policy Institute

“Gov. Whitmer laid out her plans for 2020 to protect Michigan families from Washington politicians threatening their health care, from crumbling infrastructure causing them unaffordable auto damage, and from unscrupulous businesses robbing their paychecks. I’m ready to turn that vision into legislative action, which is why I introduced Senate Bill 478, part of a robust bill package to crack down on payroll fraud. 

“Too many hardworking Michiganders get ripped off from cheaters who refuse to follow the simple rules of doing business. Gov. Whitmer and I are committed to supporting the Michigan workers who struggle to make ends meet as a direct result of payroll fraud.” 


Sen. Moss represents the 11th Senate District in Southern Oakland County that includes Farmington, Farmington Hills, Ferndale, Hazel Park, Huntington Woods, Lathrup Village, Madison Heights, Oak Park, Pleasant Ridge City, Royal Oak Township and Southfield.
