Unfortunately, many of the people who cook, prepare, and serve food in our country's restaurants often suffer from poverty wages, a lack of basic benefits like paid sick days, and typically have little or no chance to move up to better positions. Our friends at Restaurant Opportunities Centers United (ROC United) have been hard at work to improve conditions for our country's restaurant workers: servers, bussers, cooks, dishwashers, hosts, among others.
ROC United's Diners Guide & app provides information on wages, benefits, and the promotion practices of the 100 most popular restaurants in America and highlights what they call "high road" restaurants -- restaurants that invest in their staff through fair labor practices -- in 10 major cities across the country, from Los Angeles to D.C. to New York City and your city.
We are excited to be working with ROC and encourage you to get more involved in your dining experience. We all care about the quality of the food we order, where it comes from, and perhaps if it is organic. We should also care about the working conditions of those who prepare and serve the food in our favorite restaurants.
We want the workers to get fair wages. We do not want them to have to come to work sick, while preparing and serving us, because they have no sick days to take off, and can't afford to miss the money they make.
ROC's Diners Guide gives consumers the tools to speak up for fair wages every time they dine out.
Please visit rocunited.org to download the free app or print the guide. There you can also find a short but very useful video on how to communicate as a valued customer with the owners and managers of restaurants you visit.
I hope you are as excited as we are to be working with ROC and supporting the workers where we dine.
Here is to a great meal and fulfilled restaurant workers,
