Thanks to the historic strike in summer 2011 by brave J-1 students at the Hershey's Chocolate packing plant, the U.S. government has found that Hershey's subcontractors illegally overcharged students for housing.
The U.S. Department of Labor has recovered back wages for J-1 Summer Work Travel students who worked at the Hershey's plant from November 2009 to October 2012.
If you worked as a J-1 Summer Work Travel student at the Hershey's plant in Palmyra, PA between November 2009 and October 2011, please enter your info below so we can help make sure you have all the information to receive the back wages the government has ordered SHS, CETUSA, and Exel to pay.
NOTE: It is illegal retaliation for anyone related to CETUSA, SHS, Exel, or their agents to threaten you or discourage you in any way from collecting these back wages. Please let NGA know if this happens.
