 1414 Walnut Street, Berkeley, CA 94709

 Goldman School of Public Policy, JCC East Bay

With 13 million workers, the restaurant industry is one of the largest and fastest-growing sectors of the US economy—and it is also the lowest paying. Join GSPP, the East Bay Jewish Community Center and Saru Jayaraman in a vibrant discussion about what these low wages mean for tipped workers, how this relates to #MeToo, and what can be done. Followed by a dessert reception.

Saru Jayaraman is the cofounder and president of the Restaurant Opportunities Centers United (ROC United), professor of public policy at the Goldman School of Public Policy, and director of the Food Labor Research Center at University of California, Berkeley.

This event will be followed by a dessert reception.
