💵 With the new additions, NJ now has 129 businesses on "The WALL"

💵 The posted employers are cheating their workers and/or the state, officials say

💵 The list is updated monthly

Another nine employers have joined New Jersey's own wall of shame.

The WALL (Workplace Accountability in Labor List), from the New Jersey Department of Labor and Workforce Development, now includes 129 businesses that have operated in the Garden State and have failed to keep their end of the deal with workers and state laws.

According to NJDOL, the nine new businesses (listed below) owe more than $350,000 total in unpaid wages, taxes, and fees.

Collectively, the list's 129 businesses owe $13.8 million, either directly to workers or for unpaid taxes, contributions or penalties.

Businesses posted to the WALL have had plenty of notice before reaching this point, according to officials.

"We don't want this list to get bigger. We want the list to get smaller," Labor Commissioner Robert Asaro-Angelo told New Jersey 101.5 in February. "We're very proud that in New Jersey, an overwhelming majority are good employers."

The businesses on the WALL range from restaurants and salons to demolition and transportation companies. All are barred from receiving a public contract of any kind, for as long as they're included on the list.

Asaro-Angelo said this unfortunate distinction also serves as a public warning to prospective workers and clients — maybe these aren't businesses you'd like to work with.
