Wage Theft Bill to Die in House Subcommittee

  • Photo
DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - A bill that that would have required employers in Iowa to tell workers at hiring what they'll earn and outline any deductions in writing will not survive this year.

The wage theft bill passed the Senate last week with only Democrats supporting it. It was assigned to a House subcommittee Monday. Committee Chairman Greg Forristall, a Macedonia Republican, says he doesn't expect the subcommittee to meet again this session, which effectively kills the bill.

Forristall says the bill won't solve the problem and will only drive up costs for honest businesses.

Democrats have tried for several years to address the issue.

Wage theft includes underpayment of wages, theft of tips, and unlawful deductions from paychecks.

It occurs more frequently low-wage jobs often employing immigrant workers.
