To find out why there is so much wage-hour litigation, read my point-counterpoint interview with plaintiff's attorney Fran Rudich, published in the November 25 edition of Bloomberg BNA's FLSA Litigation Tracker.

Thanks very much to BNA's William Welkowitz for including me in the interview!

*Fun fact: According to, Willie Sutton never actually said "That's where the money is."

**Disclaimer: I am not implying that plaintiffs' wage-hour lawyers or their clients are bank robbers.
