i Apr 3rd Comments Off by

SB340, by Senator Jose Rodriguez, strengthens the penalty that the Texas Workforce Commission can levy against employees who act in bad faith when they don’t pay their workers.  This bill was voted out of the Senate this week! The vote was 24 Yeas and 6 Nays. WDP’s member, Guillermo Perez, gave an awesome testimony in the committee hearing last week, and Chairman Deuell was so moved by the testimony he asked Guillermo to stay after and have their picture taken!!
