    would simply replace the complainer with someone willing to work in his/her place and not gripe.

    And, where's the enforcement of the existing laws coming from? The republicans have blocked appointments of any oversight positions the administration has put forth.

    They clearly don't want this regulated, unlike your bedroom or vejayjay.

      Wage theft is a plausible deniability crime.

      Employers will be much less likely to do it if their employees are properly trained for how to look for it.

      The point here isn't to eliminate wage theft: it's to reduce the phenomena to a small one instead of a big one.
