Target janitors to receive settlement after wage theft

Many Wisconsin residents may not be aware that overtime wages are governed by the federal government, not their individual employers.

Under both federal and Wisconsin state laws, workers must be paid one and one-half times their regular rate of pay for all hours worked in excess of 40 per week.
