Julio was contracted to work construction in different cities throughout Northwest Arkansas, and his former boss withheld some $4,500 of owed wages while he was an employee. Julio consequently decided to seek the assistance of the Northwest Arkansas Workers Justice Center, supported by his co-worker as both them worked for the same company.

He presented accurate information regarding dates and hours worked and the Center was able to mediate. He former boss said he would agree to pay him his earned wages in installments.

Julio is receiving his payment as promised.
