Twenty-three Domino's Pizza franchises in New York have agreed to pay minimum-wage employees $448,000 to settle wage violations charges stretching from 2007 to 2013. The AP reports 750 employees will receive restitution for franchisees' various wage violations, from unpaid overtime to paying delivery drivers below the state's mandated minimum wage. The settlement joins other recent crackdowns by the New York State's Attorney General office: Last week, more than 1,600 McDonald's workers won a $500,000 settlement after an investigation revealed employees were often forced to work off-the-clock and without pay.
