From the Paper:

"In conclusion, these state and federal employment regulations not only govern and control employment regulations, but maintain and protect the rights of employees as well as employers. These laws lay the foundation for retaliation from employers for pursuing claims against honest workers. Therefore, these and many other employment laws are committed to the representation and protection of honest workers who are routinely victimized by their employers who violate wage and hour laws, which costs employees thousands of dollars every year. Why do they do this? Because, they have gotten away with it so far! However, by utilizing state and federal employment regulation laws, this country is on a positive path toward eliminating or significantly reducing employment abuse for both employees and employers through future awareness of knowing the law and fighting for our rights."
