RISE FOR A FAIR WAGE! Join the National Day of Action Tuesday, October 14 to Support the One Fair Wage


Join Restaurant Opportunities Centers United (ROC-United), Eve Ensler and One Billion Rising: Revolution and rise for a fair wage. In today's economy, families depend on both men and women to make ends meet. Corporations have stacked the deck against us, raking in profits while we struggle with increasing costs and jobs that hardly pay the bills. Women are at the core of the modern economy, but families can't prosper as long as our laws about work and family are stuck in the past. Our mothers, sisters, and daughters deserve full and fair opportunities to succeed, just like our brothers and sons. It's time to update our economy to make it work for women and their families, not just for rich corporations. Our families, our economy, and our country depend on it.

On Tuesday, October 14, Join ROC-United, Eve Ensler, and One Billion Rising in a National Day of Action for ONE FAIR WAGE and an end to gender discrimination and sexual harassment in the restaurant industry.

The action will include a flash mob of dancing servers, worker stories from ROC members, and an opportunity for others to share their stories and experiences in the industry.

Join Us for the One Fair Wage National Day of Action!
