Petition: John Lage – Treat LMC Workers with Respect and Dignity

Petición: John Lage – Trate a los Trabajadores de LMC con Respeto y Dignidad

 

ENGLISH:

Workers at almost two dozen LMC Wash and Lube locations all across New York City are demanding that owner, John Lage and his partners meet with workers, stop retaliation and treat workers with respect; and New York City is ready to stand with them!

Workers report that even after being forced to pay $3.4 million dollars to resolve wage theft claims just a few years ago, John Lage’s carwashes continued to steal workers’ wages and tips. In addition, they report facing dangerous conditions without adequate protective gear.

The right to a safe working environment and a decent wage are values that are critical to all New York City workers.

Please add your signature to tell John Lage:

 

 

ESPAÑOL:

Los trabajadores de casi dos docenas de LMC Wash and Lube en toda la ciudad están exigiendo que el propietario, John Lage y sus socios se reúnan con ellos, paren las represalias y traten a los trabajadores con respeto; ¡y la ciudad de Nueva York está lista para apoyarlos!

Los trabajadores reportan que aún después de haber sido obligado a pagar $3.4 millones de dólares en reclamos de robo de salarios hace solo unos años, los lavaderos de carros de John Lage continúan robándose los salarios de los trabajadores y sus propinas. Además, reportan que enfrentan condiciones peligrosas sin el debido equipo de protección.

El derecho a un seguro entorno laboral y a un salario decente, son valores esenciales para todos los trabajadores neoyorquinos.

Por favor sume su firma para decirle a John Lage:

 

"John Lage,

New York City is outraged by your mistreatment and retaliation against your workers at LMC Wash and Lube and across your chain of carwashes in this city.

We are greatly appalled to hear that management has illegally retaliated against workers with threats and harassment, and cut workers’ hours and thus their pay, when they stood up collectively for their rights to legal wages and a safe work environment.

We stand behind these workers and demand that you take immediate action to halt all retaliation and restore workers’ hours and pay. We insist that you promptly and respectfully meet with your employees to address these situations."

 

“John Lage,

La ciudad de Nueva York está indignada por el maltrato y las represalias en contra de sus trabajadores en LMC Wash and Lube y en toda su cadena de lavaderos de carros en esta ciudad.

Estamos bastante consternados de saber que la administración tomó represalias ilegalmente en contra de los trabajadores con amenazas y hostigamiento y redujo las horas de los trabajadores y por ende el pago, cuando estos se unieron para defender sus derechos a salarios legales y entorno laboral seguro.

Respaldamos a estos trabajadores y exigimos que tomen medidas inmediatas para poner fin a las represalias y restablecer las horas y el pago de los trabajadores. Insistimos en que se reúna de manera pronta y respetuosa con sus trabajadores y solucione estas situaciones”.

Just remember monetary as well as ethical laws can be bent and not necessarily be broken, but one’s conscious has no price tag.

Lage’s blatant disregard for the humanity of these men and women, who are hard workers and support families, is disgusting. It’s time to show business owners who make money off their poorly paid workers that we will not stand for this kind of treatment any longer.
