Rayos Burciaga, a Mexican immigrant who has lived in Santa Fe for the past 13 years, worked at a local Motel 6 as a room-service attendant for three years. But in the last year and a half that she worked there, she says, her employer would only pay her for a predetermined amount of time to clean each hotel room.

When she first started working for the motel, Burciaga, who is living in the country illegally, would clock in as soon as she started working and would get paid all the hours recorded on her time card, she said. But a new manager later changed work policies after Burciaga had worked there for just over a year.
