Is Power Design getting a free pass? That’s what DC Jobs with Justice has been trying to find out for more than two years. Despite finding that Power Design has hired unlicensed electrical contractors to perform work in the District of Columbia – as alleged by DC JWJ -- DCRA’s Board of Industrial Trades summarily dismissed JwJ’s complaint. This week, Mayor Bowser and DCRA Director Chrappah responded to JwJ’s suit, arguing that JwJ has no right to the Board’s reasons for dismissing their complaint and not taking disciplinary action against the company. Power Design paid $2.75 million to workers and the District after the D.C. Office of the Attorney General sued them for wage theft. DC JWJ says using unlicensed electrical subcontractors in the District puts residents, workers and the general public at risk.
