MTC employs more than 2,000 workers at 24 Job Corps Centers and six prisons around the nation. The company was the target of an investigation by the United States Department of Labor?s Wage and Hour Division, for compliance with the Fair Labor Standards Act.
Under supervision of the Labor Department, MTC conducted a companywide self-audit which found that 393 employees at five locations in Utah, Indiana, Ohio and New Mexico, were not paid for all hours worked. On December 16, 2005, the Labor Department announced that MTC reimbursed those employees $169,105 in back wages.
