Feminist Public Square Book Club
We are delighted to announce that our next Feminist Public Square Book Club event will take place on Wednesday, February 9th at 7:00 PM ET and will feature author, One Fair Wage President, and University of California, Berkeley’s Director of the Food Labor Research Center Saru Jayaraman, who will discuss her critically-acclaimed book, One Fair Wage: Ending Subminimum Pay in America.
After 9/11, together with displaced World Trade Center workers, Saru Jayaraman co-founded the Restaurant Opportunities Center (ROC), which grew into a national movement of restaurant workers, employers and consumers. She then launched One Fair Wage as a national campaign to end all subminimum wages in the United States. This soon inspired her book, One Fair Wage: Ending Subminimum Pay in America which advocates for an end to all subminimum wages in the United States and an increased sustainability of wages/working conditions throughout the service sector. Once you have finished reading One Fair Wage: Ending Subminimum Pay in America, you too, will join the fight for One Fair Wage policy that requires all employers to pay the full minimum wage with fair, non-discriminatory tips on top, while lifting millions of subminimum wage workers nationally out of poverty.
Pick up One Fair Wage: Ending Subminimum Pay in America today and join us for a thought-provoking discussion between National NOW President Christian F. Nunes and Saru Jayaraman including a live Q&A. Register to join us on January 26th.
We hope to see you there!
