Restaurant workers and their advocates are pushing for better conditions in a new campaign targeting Darden Restaurant Group, which owns the fining dining Capital Grille. We’re going to take an in-depth look at this campaign in two cities this week, starting in Los Angeles. The “Dignity at Darden” campaign is headed by the workers advocacy group, Restaurants Opportunities Center United, or ROC-United. It coincides with a class action lawsuit filed by workers in New York, Chicago, Washington DC, Los Angeles and Miami. They say the company violated the Civil Rights Act, the federal Fair Labor Standards Act and state wage and hour laws. FSRN’s Leilani Albano has more on the story.
