“Waging Change” Free Online Screening

Register (free)


Wage justice is racial justice; wage justice is gender justice! 

Did you know that the federal subminimum wage for tipped workers is only $2.13? This Labor Day week, we’re shining a light on the movement to end the two-tiered wage system and bring justice for restaurant workers and others who are forced to live on tips. We’re excited to join One Fair Wage, Women Make Movies, and 20+ economic, racial & gender justice organizations for a live virtual screening of WAGING CHANGE and panel discussion Thursday Sept. 10 at 4 pm PT / 7 pm ET with Peabody Award-winning filmmaker Abby Ginzberg, One Fair Wage President Saru Jayaraman, National Policy Campaign Director Nikki Cole, and restaurant worker leader Cheadza Kundidzora.

Sexual harassment on the job is 5 times higher in the restaurant industry than in others, according to research by One Fair Wage. Meanwhile, restaurant workers in 42 states, overwhelmingly women and people of color, earn a subminimum wage and are forced to survive off of tips.
