chinese newspaper must pay up

The Chinese Daily News, one of Southern Calfornia's largest Chinese-language newspapers, has been ordered by a federal judge to pay $5.19 million to 200 employees—reporters, production workers, delivery drivers, advertising salespeople and secretaries—who were denied years of overtime pay and subjected to other labor law violations: Paper Is Penalized for Labor Violations. The employees brought a class action lawsuit in 2004, charging that the paper withheld overtime pay and denied workers rest and meal breaks during shifts of 12 hours and longer. No more. Time to pay up.
