NYC nail salon workers sue over wages after newspaper's probe

NEW YORK, May 14 (Reuters) - Two New York City nail salon workers sued four salon companies on Thursday over wages, days after a New York Times investigation into labor practices in the industry.

The lawsuit filed in U.S. District Court in Manhattan says the workers were paid $60 for 10-hour shifts without breaks. It seeks class action status on behalf of all people who have been employed by the companies.
