Economic Issue: Illegal employment increases tax burdens on workers, strains community healthcare and ultimately moves wages out of communities - in some cases, out of states.
Human Trafficking: Labor brokers are fly-by-night companies practicing illegal activities such as colluding with payday loans and aggressive financial threats, leaving workers to vulnerable when they don't receive a paycheck.
Healthcare & Benefits: Misclassified workers have no options to receive health insurance through their employer and most are not eligible to receive unemployment insurance when dismissed.
Community Funding: Uncollected taxes leads to reduced funding for emergency services, less cashflow for public works projects and reductions in public school and transportation spending.
