Study: Wage theft is rampant in most populous states

Getting paid for a hard day's work may not always result in full satisfaction for workers. Reading through a W-2 can seem frustrating -- adding up the various deductions that are legally taken out from your bottom line. However, recent research conducted by the Economic Policy Institute shows that wage theft is a substantial problem in America.

After reviewing minimum wage pay violations in the 10 most-populous states in the country, the study's authors estimate that wage theft costs Americans more money than is stolen in acts of burglary, larceny, auto theft and robberies combined. And the research only touched one aspect of wage theft -- the failure to pay the relevant minimum wage.
