Most people have experienced wage theft.
A 2009 analysis of the laws that employers in the United States routinely break states:
"More than two-thirds (68 percent) of our sample experienced at least one pay-related violation in the previous work week. The average worker lost $51, out of average weekly earnings of $339. Assuming a full-time, full-year work schedule, we estimate that these workers lost an average of $2,634 annually due to workplace violations, out of total earnings of $17,616. That translates into wage theft of 15 percent of earnings."
This amounts to billions of dollars in just the US per year.
