In 2015, Virginia & Ambinder secured a $11 million settlement for food service workers employed by the Maramont Corporation. The workers alleged they had been denied prevailing wages, living wages, and supplemental benefits while performing food preparation work on publicly financed contracts for the City of New York, the New York City Department of Education, the New York City Department of Homeless Services, and the New York City Division of Municipal Supply Services. Through V&A’s determined advocacy, the workers were able to recover the wages they claimed. See Wulton Cardona, et al. v. Maramont Corporation, et al.
