Workers Win Wage Settlement After Community Protest

As Durham residents, student leaders, faith community members and others gathered last night for a vigil at the offices of the Cottages of Durham, the AFSC’s Maggie Fogarty received the call they’d been hoping for.  It was Larry Vogelman, attorney for the workers on whose behalf the vigil had been organized.  The workers--eight carpenters seeking payment for unpaid wages and overtime--had reached a settlement with Cottage Builders.  They would be paid the following day.  Maggie shared this news with the forty or so assembled people, who erupted in cheers.
