Wage Theft Bill Won't Advance in Iowa House



A bill that that would have required Iowa employers to tell workers at hiring what they'll earn and outline any deductions in writing will not survive this year. The wage theft bill passed the Senate last week with only Democrats supporting it. On Monday, it was assigned to a House subcommittee, which is not expected to meet again this session, which effectively kills the bill. Democrats have tried for several years to address the issue. Wage theft includes underpayment of wages, theft of tips, and unlawful deductions from paychecks.
