Estimates of the wages pilfered from construction workers after Hurricane Katrina run to the tens of millions of dollars.

Natasha I was just going to ask where the money I donated went?!
Thank you Elizabeth

Disgusting. Hope others learn to demand payments during and after their jobs are complete. Thanks Elizabeth

Shameful how these poor construction workers are being treated. They are good enough to help and rebuild the city, and are being treated like dirt. Where is respect?

Sickening and pathetic how these workers are being treated. Yeah, they're good enough to be worked to down the bone but heaven forbid they should be compensated for their hard work or have any recourse against greedy opportunists that resort to exploitation, mistreatment and even death threats to achieve their means (read: profits). I'm so angry about this!
Thanks Elizabeth.

I am glad they organized and are trying to protect themselves from scum and criminals. These people deserve much better. Perhaps those that protest their existence in the US should do the work and not be paid. What have some of us evolved into?

This is horrible. Billionaires should share their profits by paying workers the good wages they deserve.
