This sin is often overlooked
IMHO, this sin is something that regular Catholics and Bishops are encouraging on a wide scale by supporting illegal immigration.
In my area Mexican laborers are being exploited by landscaping companies, cleaning companies, construction companies, etc. Many of these companies do not pay overtime rates because they can get away with it because they know the illegal is not going to complain to authorities about it.
This is an enormous sin.
Very good point ... labourers who are here legally can have recourse to the courts if they are being denied just compensation for their work. Illegals cannot. Our immigration laws need BOTH to be reformed and to be enforced.
>>Defrauding laborers of their wages<<
How about the opposite end of that scale? Demanding all the perks that Unions get. Demanding that people be paid to sit on their butts in the “job banks”, or doing as little as possible at work, reading FB or FR on the job, personal emails and correspondence? So an employer doesn’t pay “overtime”? Do they pay “time”? People are lucky to have jobs.
Why only from an evil employers point of view?
I’ve worked tons of jobs where my fellow employees commit the sin of sloth constantly.
It’s not all the big evil employers. Sometimes it’s the lazy employees.
