I chat with Saru Jayaraman, one of the country’s leading labor rights activists for the hospitality industry, about how to improve the lives of those who work hard to serve us delicious, sometimes expensive food, often for not a whole lot of money. It’s all part of our “World Changers” series!
Ari Taymor is the chef-owner at Alma in Los Angeles, where the minimum wage is $9/hour, even for tipped restaurant workers. Related: Mayor Eric Garcetti recently proposed that the city’s minimum be hiked up to $13.25 by 2017.
That means the food needs work. but that also means you’ll drink well here. Very well. Was happy to give that theory a test drive. Multiple test drives.
Spite isn’t easy to prove, but it looks like we have a clear cut case here!
So this is where we are. As a culture. #reststopreckonings
