Doris Ahaghotu had been a home care worker for more than 25 years when the agency where she worked was shut down. The FBI launched an investigation against it for alleged Medicaid fraud.
She kept working without pay for three months until the person she was caring for could be transferred to another agency. During that time, she racked up more than $7,000 in unpaid wages.
Then Doris had a stroke and was forced to go on disability. With no money coming in, she had to rely on her children to pay her rent until her disability check came through.
Doris is now part of a legal action mounted by hundreds of homecare workers to win back her wages from the agency.
