Illinois Revokes License of Temp Agency Check Cashing Store

ProPublica detailed abuses in the Little Village neighborhood of Chicago, where labor brokers known as raiteros, picked up workers and shuttled them in buses and vans to pack products for Sony, Fresh Express, Smirnoff and Ty Inc., one of the largest makers of stuffed animals in the world.

At the end of the work week, raiteros would pick up the paychecks from the temp agencies and bring them to check cashing places in Little Village. The check cashing store named in the revocation order, for example, made an arrangement to collect fees for Rigoberto Aguilar, a raitero who supplied workers for Select Remedy, part of one of the largest industrial temp agencies in the United States.
