Professor Ruben Garcia Featured on KNPR's State of Nevada

http://law.unlv.edu/faculty/ruben-garcia.htmlRuben J. Garcia is a Professor of Law at the William S. Boyd School of Law.

On March 18, he was featured on KNPR's State of Nevada segment titled Workers Sue McDonald's.

"I think in many industries there has been a failure to pay the minimum wage, not just in Las Vegas but also throughout the country...," he said during the interview. "The fact that there have been many, many, many of these lawsuits filed is one indication. That doesn't necessarily mean that the businesses are at fault. It doesn't always mean, of course, that the plaintiffs are always right, but there are certainly enough of these cases to suggest that it is and has been a growing problem."

A recognized expert in the field of labor and employment law, Professor Garcia teaches Labor Law, Employment Law, Constitutional Law, and Professional Responsibility at the Boyd School of Law. He has been quoted in the Los Angeles Times, the Wall Street Journal, and the Las Vegas Review-Journal, among others, and has appeared on national and local radio and television programs.
