QUEENS COUNTY POLITICS: JFK Workers Demand Wage Records From Private Contractor

Eulen America employees have the support of Queens lawmakers like Borough President Melinda Katz and U.S. Rep. Carolyn Maloney (D-Astoria) in petitioning their employer about alleged wage theft from their employer through a workforce app.

“In a show of strength, you have stood up and demanded better working conditions by holding actions at four major airports,” said Katz. “Eulen America should understand that they need to address the issues you have identified. I stand in solidarity with you today and moving forward to ensure you get the working conditions and respect you deserve.”

Maloney shares the borough president’s sentiments.

“It is only right for workers to be compensated fairly and to know if they are, indeed, being paid for their work,” said Maloney. “Eulen America must change their approach and give their employees access to their paystubs and payroll records so they can verify appropriate compensation. The current policy is unacceptable and irresponsible.”
