Winnetka, CA- Hector Nolasco faced deportation after his employer falsely reported him to the police to avoid paying him his wages. “Hector and a friend were hired to work for 5 hours. After working 7, they told their employer he’d have to pay them more if he wanted them to keep working. When he refused, Hector and his friend walked away. But the employer followed them, harassed them and, finally, called the police and falsely reported that Hector had threatened them with a knife.” Read more from NDLON’s website here.
