    A coalition will gather in downtown Nashville on Saturday to demand construction workers are compensated for nearly 10 months of unpaid wages.

    Workers' Dignity, community leaders and unpaid construction workers will gather outside the JW Marriott Hotel in downtown Nashville to demand its subcontractors reach an agreement over the nearly $2 million they are owed, according to workers' federal lawsuit.

    The case has gone unresolved since May 2018, when construction workers at the building site stopped working after two drywall subcontractors didn't give them their paychecks.

    This uncovered more than a year of theft of workers' wages during the construction of the hotel.

    Community members will urge the company to resolve nearly ten months worth of unpaid wages.
