Did your New Year’s Eve celebration include eating at a restaurant?
Who served you–and how was that person’s experience?
Those questions are at the core of Saru Jayaraman’s work.
Saru, who is co-founder and co-director of nonprofit Restaurant Opportunities Centers United, is also the author of the book Behind the Kitchen Door, in which she explores the working conditions faced by the nation’s ten million restaurant workers.
In this rebroadcast, Saru talks about the experiences that led her to create ROC United, current conditions for restaurant workers, and how you can help, the next time you go out to eat.
