MIAMI (CBSMiami) – If it wasn’t for bad publicity, the Miami Marlins wouldn’t have any publicity at all. The latest blight on the franchise’s name comes from CBS4 news partner the Miami Herald in a report about the contractors on the teams multi-million dollar stadium.

According to the Herald, dozens of workers who helped build Marlins Park are still waiting for at least $67,000 in back pay from the contractor that hired them. The Herald said a county inspector found workers reported feeling intimidated despite not being paid the correct wages.

Marlins Park has been shrouded in controversy since before it was built. The plan used more than $500 million in taxpayer money that will eventually cost taxpayers more than a billion dollars. It cost a county mayor his job and is hampering the Dolphins’ pursuit of improvements to Sun Life Stadium.

According to the Herald, last September more than 40 workers filed a lawsuit against multiple contractors and subcontractor companies saying they were not paid the correct wages for the work that was completed and were not paid for overtime.
