Picking crops is back breaking work that comes with long hours in the blazing sun. Failing to pay these workers overtime or even minimum wage is not only illegal it’s immoral, says Eric Grover, a Los Angeles employment lawyer. These farmworkers deserve to be paid for the time that they work, and should not be taken advantage of. If the allegations are accurate, the Labor Commissioner is on the right side in prosecuting the farm labor contractor.
