Asian Moon Agrees to $1M Lawsuit Settlement

Lawsuit states the restaurant chain did not pay more than 250 workers minimum wage and overtime.

A Garden City eatery that is part of a chain has agreed to pay a $1 million lawsuit settlement, according to the United States Department of Labor.

Asian Moon, which also has locations in Massapequa Park and New Rochelle, allegedly did not pay 255 workers minimum wage and overtime. According to Newsday, the bulk of the alleged violations occurred on Long Island.

Newsday reports:

Under the agreement, which a judge signed off on late Monday, the company agrees to pay $1,085,752 in back wages and damages to the employees. It will also pay about $98,000 in civil penalties to the department.

The Garden City location has been open on Franklin Avenue since 2005.

The voter suppression I refer to is the Republican led drive to implement unconstitutional voter ID laws that are designed to discourage voters they deem likely to vote Democratic. The poor, the elderly and ethnic minorities would be the voters that are suppressed. A secret ballot is the ultimate protection against the overt coercion I described earlier, as it has been widely reported that various business threatened to stop hiring, fire, limit hours, or deny benefits to employees that vote against the employees preferred candidates and wishes. It's not that I just "don't believe Fox". It's just that their "reporting" has been demonstrably shown to be false. If they traded in the truth, who'd argue with them? Good luck is right, because too many are simply relying on luck alone.

Your very first comment on this board? You joined to post this? Ha! Who has too much time? Though aptly named, maybe refraining from personal attacks might be a more dignified approach.
