Labor department attorneys will move that the funds be considered an administrative cost - giving former employees of Duraco Products priority over other unsecured creditors in case money is recovered from company owners Michael and Kevin Lynch, said Leone Jose Bicchieri of CWC.

Last week attorneys from Working Hands Legal Clinic representing workers were arguing for a default judgment for the plaintiffs, Bicchieri said.
"We want to send a message that declaring bankruptcy is not a way out," said Bicchieri, referring to perpetrators of wage theft. "If you try to escape into bankruptcy, we're going to go after you."
He said right now CWC is dealing with several cases similar to Duraco, where workers are getting paid only part of the time. "In this economy it's beginning to look like a new business model," he said. At one worksite, "every week when they get paid, they run to the nearest bank and hope they'll be able to cash their check.
"It's such a bad economy, they say, 'At least we're getting paid some of the time - and what else are we going to do?'" Bicchieri said.
