A press conference in light of an important decision for
immigrant workers who are forced to work long hours
without overtime pay.

In a decision released on December 6, a federal court ruled
in favor of Korean immigrant worker, Doo Nam Yang, and
ordered Yang’s former employer – jewelry company
ACBL Corp. of Manhattan – to pay the full claim of $70,000
in back wages in overtime, as well as additional damages.
