In what is certainly no coincidence, the California Division of Labor Standards Enforcement has been investigating cases of wage theft by employers who just happen to employ WWU activists.  The campaign has also solicited workers into class-action lawsuits against those same employers to collect “stolen” wages.  (Suits are based on the charge that workers paid by the piece were forced to wait for shipments and so should have been paid on the
