Thanks to Nashville's Ben Hall NC5
and NewsChannel 5+
for featuring the Southeastern Carpenters on its hit show, OpenLine, to discuss wage theft and payroll tax fraud in the construction industry. The SECRC's
Victor White (shown on the right), Director of Business Development for the Council and a key figure in our fight against wage theft and payroll tax fraud, provided a host of information for the viewers to consider. Take a look at the show, here.
According to some estimates, $2.6 billion in payroll tax fraud is lost annually. Nashville construction projects add up to more than $2 billion. It's clear that we’ve let the construction industry take advantage of workers, skirt their taxes, and skim off the top for too long.
