Local carnival co. faces suit over low wages


The plaintiff, on behalf of himself and other workers, is seeking compensation for lost wages, triple damages and interest, as well as attorneys’ fees and all costs.

Liss-Riordan isn’t sure exactly how many others will be encompassed by the suit, but in cases like this, employer records are subpoenaed to get the names and addresses of all those who may benefit if the case is won or resolved.

Fiesta Shows will have an opportunity to file a corresponding brief answering the allegations made in the suit. However, since the suit was filed so recently, the company has not had a chance to do so, Liss-Riordan said.
