HBO's Westworld star Thandie Newton joins ROC United and calls for an end to the legacy of slavery.
It's time to end the unfair two-tiered wage system for tipped workers.

People who work for tips in America suffer an abysmally low federal minimum wage of only $2.13/hr.

This wage hasn’t changed in nearly 30 years. The lower wage for people who work for tips is a holdover from slavery.

It’s time for one fair wage; it’s time to eliminate the subminimum wage.

It’s time for higher wages and better benefits in the restaurant industry. Click here or join the fight at www.1fairwage.com.
