“What Every Diner Should Know About the People Who Feed Us” presented by Bread & Roses Labor Series
5th & K | Cullen Room | August 07,2012 | 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Bread & Roses is a monthly labor series featuring a variety of events focused on workers and organized labor. Each month brings a new topic through interactive discussions, film screenings, and performances. The hope for these events is that attendees walk away with a greater understanding of organized labor, its role in shaping history and current relevance. The name "Bread & Roses" was inspired by a poem/song written by James Oppenheim that appeals for both fair wages and dignified conditions.
Join us for an interactive night that takes us behind the kitchen door and into the lives of restaurant workers. Get a sneak peak at book promo video for Behind the Kitchen Door: What Every Diner Should Know about the People Who Feed Us, written by Saru Jayaraman. Learn more from DC’s Paid Sick Days for All Coalition experts about the movement on the ground to improve the conditions for restaurant diners, workers, and owners alike.
Free and open to all. Bread & Roses is held on the first Tuesday of every month at Busboys and Poets 5th& K.
