One of the largest forms of theft in the US today is wage theft.

I experienced it first hand as a waitress.

A manager forced me to clock out before I was done finishing my work, & I couldn’t leave.

When I spoke up about it, my schedule was changed to late, unusual, poorly tipping hours for a week.
