NEW YORK: Angry over non-payment of wages and exploitation at workplace, a group of Indian-American Sikh construction workers have filed a lawsuit against their employers in a city court.

In the complaint filed on Tuesday, the workers, all members of New York Construction Workers United (NYCWU), a worker's body, alleged that even after putting in long hours of work in dangerous conditions they were not fully paid and often discriminated against.
