Munoz101118CHICAGO – Assistant Majority Leader Antonio “Tony” Munoz (D-Chicago) applauds Attorney General Lisa Madigan for her work in shutting down an employment agency charged with violations from its treatment of immigrant Latino workers.

“Regardless of a worker’s immigration status, they deserve to be treated fairly when employed by a business in Illinois and throughout the country,” Munoz said. “I’m grateful for Attorney General Madigan’s efforts in seeking justice for these especially vulnerable workers.”

Madigan recently announced a consent decree that will shut down Xing Ying, an employment agency based in the Chinatown neighborhood, which is located in Munoz’s district. The business was charged with numerous federal and state civil rights violations due to its treatment of immigrant Latino workers.

“I don’t want any business in my district who violates the rights of working people and takes advantage of Latino immigrants,” Munoz said. “Those aren’t the type of jobs I advocate for, and I’m glad to see Xing Ying go.”

The consent decree stems from Madigan’s November 2015 lawsuit against three underground employment agencies that acted as central suppliers of workers for Chinese buffet-style restaurants across Illinois.
