Al Gore-backed green energy firm fined for violating minimum wage law

The law in California is $8/hour; the company paid $2.66/hour… in pesos.

“Bloom Energy Corp. has been ordered by a U.S. District Court Judge to pay $31,922 in back wages and an equal amount in liquidated damages to employees from Mexico after the company was found to have willfully violated the minimum wage, overtime and record-keeping provisions of the Fair Labor Standards Act.” [CBS]

Al Gore’s firm Kleiner Perkins has financed Bloom.
