This Month: May 3rd – 9th, we will
be donating to Restaurant Workers’ Community Foundation
Restaurant Workers’ Community Foundation is an advocacy and action nonprofit created by and for restaurant workers.
By addressing quality-of-life issues that disproportionately affect restaurant workers – 40% of whom live on poverty-level wages – we hope to strengthen the workforce and increase opportunities for advancement in the industry to more people. The restaurant industry is notorious for low wages, poor job mobility, high turnover, and burnout. Structural and cultural issues within the industry decrease quality-of-life and make long term work in the industry unsustainable for many. But it doesn’t have to be that way. That’s why we’re focused on:
Wage Fairness and Career Ladders
Gender Equity and Sexual Violence
Racial Justice and Support for the Immigrant Community
Mental Health and Substance Abuse
Where should we donate next?
