House Unlikely to OK Senate-Backed Wage Theft Bill

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Civil rights groups and some Democrats in the Legislature say Iowa has a wage theft problem and it needs to be fixed.

Wage theft can include underpayment of wages, theft of tips, and unlawful deductions from paychecks. It's most common in low-wage jobs often employing immigrant workers.

Sen. Bill Dotzler, a Waterloo Democrat says it's an epidemic involving up to 1,000 workers a year in Iowa. He's proposed a bill that holds employers responsible and forces them to tell workers up front in writing how much they'll get paid and what deductions will be taken from their checks.

The bill passed the Democratic-led Senate but it's expected to die in the House Labor Committee where majority Republicans contend it would be too costly for honest businesses.
