    NEW BRUNSWICK, NJ—Former employees of New Brunswick restaurants who say they were owed money by their old bosses have found a city ordinance passed in 2014 useful in getting the money they were owed.

    On November 18, a caravan of protesters stopped at La Cabanita Dominican Restaurant on Elizabeth Street, an establishment which owed workers a total of $11,599 in wages.

    NEW BRUNSWICK, NJ—A new report produced by New Labor, a non-profit workers' rights organization, in partnership with the Center for Women and Work at Rutgers University, has revealed vast deficiences in the treatment of temporary workers in New Jersey.

    The findings contained in the report, titled "Controlled Chaos," were gathered in 2014 from focus groups of "perma-temp" warehouse workers in New Jersey.
