New York Governor Signs Emergency Nail Salon Worker Law

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo signed into law on Thursday pay and health protections for the state's nail salon workers, comprised largely of Asian and Latino immigrants, his office announced. The emergency legislation follows a New York Times expose this year about the nail salon industry that highlighted unsafe working conditions with harmful chemicals and unfair labor practices that included paying less than the legal minimum wage and withholding paychecks.
