Ã?r-pizza weblog Slice goes all Smoking Gun on us today, posting documents from a lawsuit brought last week against Nolita pizza legend Lombardi's by several former deliverymen. Reports Slice:
The suit claims that the pizzeria never paid the plaintiffs the Federal minimum wage, instead paying "$20 shift — resulting in an hourly rate ranging from approximately $2.86 an hour to approximately $3.05 an hour." (The Federal Minimum Wage as of September 1, 1997, is $5.15 an hour.) Moreover, the lawsuit claims that the pizzeria lowered the wages of five of the plaintiffs when they asked the defendant for pay increases.That last little touch there—that's style, people.
