WMAQ’s Unit 5 Investigative Team, in partnership with The Chicago Reporter, chronicled the struggle of an Ecuadorian worker whose fight to recover owed wages is stuck in a bureaucratic logjam since 2009. The story was a follow-up to the Reporter’s March/April investigation, “Punched,” that detailed the long delay and steep odds in winning back full wages facing workers who file wage-theft claims at the Illinois Department of Labor. The story was also featured on Telemundo
