Workers will get $31k in back pay

Hotel project ignored wage law

A Woburn construction company will pay $31,000 in back wages after Massachusetts’ attorney general found that one of its subcontractors failed to pay the state-required minimum wage to laborers from a Philadelphia church who were hired to renovate the Boston Marriott Copley Place.

The company, Baystate Services Inc., agreed to pay the money to 37 men from Victory Outreach Church, an evangelical ministry that specializes in rehabilitating people struggling with substance abuse. The church often arranges for its members to perform labor as part of its recovery program.
