Stamford contractor appears in court in wage dispute

STAMFORD - A subcontractor whose worker fell to his death in October faced a judge this morning in Stamford for allegedly not paying the man's wages.

Protesters greeted John Dosky, who owns American Building Group, at the Stamford courthouse.

Dosky was a subcontractor working on the Chelsea Piers site on Blachley Road in Stamford when Javier Salinas fell off a roof and died.

Dosky is accused of owing thousands of dollars in back wages to Salinas and his two brothers, who also worked there.

He showed up without a lawyer and says he is willing to pay the wages.
