NYS Comptroller Thomas P. DiNapoli Statement on CUNY Contractor Wage Thefts

I applaud Attorney General Schneiderman on his felony arrests of contractors who stole more than $200,000 in wages owed from workers at CUNY and NYCHA facilities. This marks the second time this week that a contractor has failed to pay employees. Yesterday, my office reported $82,000 in underpaid wages by a separate CUNY contractor. It's time for CUNY and any state agency which is contracting for work to protect taxpayer money.
