Description

A Seattle Times investigation finds that "Washington residents give their employers well over $13 million a year in free work." The story reveals that unpaid labor comes from white-collar and blue-collar workers as "uncounted overtime, work performed off the clock and illegal deductions that whittle away a worker's pay." The article looks at reduced employee benefits as another aspect of unpaid labor. "Many employees - even white-collar workers - still don't know or insist on their rights," the Seattle Times reports.
