In the New Haven, Connecticut  suburb of Hamden, workers at the Town House diner won a major victory with a judge deciding in their favor in a battle with the owners of the restaurant over wage theft. The owners, Spiro Protopsaltis, Dina Topcu, Aristotle Protopsaltis and Ahmet Topcu, were paying these workers as little as $3.14 an hour with no overtime pay, yet demanding 72-hour weeks. Minimum wage in Connecticut is $10.10 an hour. The Department of Labor awarded the six workers, who have stood on a picket line along with community members and workers’ organizations, $65,000 in back wages.
