From the NY Times:
Adding in hundreds of millions of dollars in work on the city’s subways, schools and hospitals, not to mention a downtown firehouse, provides a sense of the reach of M.A. Angeliades Inc., a construction contractor that has quietly thrived doing large public works projects in the New York City area over about 20 years.
But the company’s run as a low-profile public works giant was in jeopardy on Wednesday as Manhattan prosecutors announced an indictment charging that the owner and two top officials stole $600,000 in unpaid wages and benefits from their workers.
The indictment, which also charges the company and three union officials, accuses M. A. Angeliades of failing to pay prevailing wages and benefits to employees who were working on rehabilitating 11 subway stations from January 2005 through December 2007, officials said.
