Support Stop-Work Orders in MD

The Maryland Legislature took action to stand up for Maryland workers by passing SB1. As you know SB1, authorizes the Commissioner of Labor and Industry in the Maryland Department of Labor, after an investigation, to issue a stop-work order to a public works contractor or subcontractor that may have violated the State’s prevailing wage law including where wage theft and worker misclassification are taking place. This is an important tool that protects workers and holds unscrupulous contractors accountable for their actions.

We can no longer let these bad actors in the construction industry profit on public projects while wage theft is taking place. I join the Maryland workers in support of stop-work orders.
