EJC-led Wage Theft Protest Featured in Washington Post
In October, EJC staff members and volunteers, together with our coalition partners and members of our workers committee, spearheaded a protest outside Indigo, a restaurant in D.C.’s H St. NE neighborhood. The protest demanded thousands of dollars in unpaid wages for Reyna M., a former Indigo employee. The protest was featured in the Washington Post.

To date, Indigo has not paid Reyna the wages she is owed, but with the help of the EJC, she is continuing to fight for what is due to her.
