Unfortunately, the workers who cook, prepare, and serve our food suffer from poverty wages, a lack of basic benefits like paid sick days, and often have little or no chance to move up to better positions. When the people who serve us food can’t afford to pay the rent or take a day off when they’re sick, our dining experience suffers.
The 2nd annual 2013 ROC National Diners’ Guide provides information on the wage, benefits, and promotion practices of the 150 most popular restaurants in America in 9 major cities across the country, from Los Angeles to Washington, D.C. to New York City. The Guide also lists responsible restaurants where you can eat knowing that your server can afford to pay the rent and your cook isn’t working while sick.
