March 3rd, 2013 • by The Welcome Table

Last Saturday, Saru Jayaraman, co-founder of Restaurant Opportunities Centers United (ROC United) was on Up with Chris Hayes with Celebrity Chef Tom Colicchio, Victoria of Restaurant Opportunities Center of Philadelphia, and a representative from New York’s National Restaurant Association to discuss the state of food service labor in our country’s restaurants.

The discussion highlighted many issues that Saru Jayaraman chronicled in her book,
Behind The Kitchen Door, which exposes the rampant discrimination, meager wages, and health issues (lack of earned sick days, working while sick) that face our country’s 10 million food-service workers every day.
