WASHINGTON — Joe’s Jeans Inc. reached an agreement with the U.S. Labor Department to pay $158,952 in back wages to 110 workers at one of the company’s Los Angeles contractors.
According to the Labor Department’s Wage & Hour Division, the contractor, Angel’s Finishing Inc., did not pay its workers the appropriate minimum wage and overtime required by law. Instead, Angel’s Finishing paid on a piece-rate basis and did not record weekend working hours, the agency said. The contractor worked solely for Joe’s Jeans, based in City of Commerce, Calif.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
