In 2007, Wage Justice Center was founded by Matthew Sirolly and Melvin Yee with seed funding from Echoing Green. But the need for the Wage Justice Center was identified much earlier. In 2004, Matt & Melvin were law school students at USC Gould School of Law. They witnessed the frustration of workers who had not been paid despite performing the work – and the greater frustration of workers who “won” wage theft judgments that went perennially unenforced.

Over the last 10 years, Matt and Melvin have inspired a movement of social justice activists dedicated to bringing basic justice to workers.

Under Matt and Melvin’s leadership, the Wage Justice Center has acquired an specialized expertise in using commercial collections law on behalf of workers.
