If restaurants meet our standards on wages, benefits, and promotion practices, we consider them “high road” restaurants.
The app also provides employment info on the most popular restaurants in America in major cities across the country, from Los Angeles to D.C. to New York City.
2015 version includes new features:
- know of a “high road” restaurant in your city that isn’t in our app yet? you’ll be able to submit it to our app to be considered for publication!
- raise awareness of racial justice issues prevalent throughout the restaurant industry, like occupational segregation!
- head straight to a restaurant’s Yelp! page to leave reviews that encourage “high road” practices!
This guide isn’t about boycotting certain restaurants. We want you to continue to dine at your favorite restaurants, but if they don’t score well in the guide (or are absent altogether), we want you to tell the restaurant owners that fair wages, access to paid sick days and internal advancement opportunities are important to you. Check out our short video showing how!
If you’re in NYC and are interested in fair labor practices everywhere you go, check out SWICH! They’re all about helping you find better businesses that share your values.
