Feeding Others While Going Hungry: Economic Exploitation of Workers in the Food Service Industry

Saturday, Apr 16, 2016, 3:30 pm

This workshop will explore three main problem areas that food service workers experience. Wage theft, low wages and lack of fair scheduling. These all contribute to food service workers making so little and struggle to survive on their wages. We will also explore how the tax payers are subsidizing large corporations and the U.S. Federal government when their workers rely on public aid because of their low wages. We will discuss some solutions and how everyone at EAD can participate.
