Avalon Bay embarrassed again
Posted by on

A story appeared today in the New Haven Register about NERCC Carpenters demonstrating in front of an Avalon Bay project in Connecticut. This major developer has chosen to turn a blind eye to the exploitation and abuse of immigrant workers in the construction industry; even when it happens on their own job sites.

The company would have people believe that all is well and they take care of any problems that arise on their job sites. Perhaps Mr. Kinter, from Avalon Bay, would like to explain why there were 10 Stop Worker Orders issued on their site by Connecticut state authorities.
