The National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) has accused Manhattan’s Saigon Grill restaurants of illegally firing 22 delivery drivers because they requested minimum wage. The workers complained they were paid as little as $120 for a workweek that sometimes reached 75 hours.
The workers, most of whom are Chinese immigrants, were fired shortly after they banded together to ask for more money.
The NLRB also has accused Saigon Grill managers of illegally interrogating workers about union activities and threatening to shut down deliveries if workers complained.
