One Fair Wage: Ending Subminimum Pay in America
A Briefing With Investors, Employers and Workers
Please join One Fair Wage in hearing from investors, chefs and restaurateurs, and subminimum wage service workers at a timely briefing on subminimum wages in the United States, including their impacts on all three stakeholders, and the potential for change.
This event is being held on the launch date of Saru Jayaraman’s new book: One Fair Wage: Ending Subminimum Pay in America, (New Press, 2021), which uplifts the stories and voices of subminimum wages workers across many sectors - including tipped restaurant, nail salon, parking attendant and airport wheelchair attendant workers, gig workers, workers with disabilities, incarcerated workers, and youth workers.
In the restaurant industry, the largest employer of subminimum wage workers, pandemic-impacted service workers have cited subminimum wages as the reason they are leaving the industry in the millions - leaving restaurants massively understaffed.
We will be hearing workers, employers, investors and policymakers in conversation about how subminimum wages are a source of inequity for workers and liability for employers and investors, and how setting one fair minimum wage for all workers across the nation will help alleviate poverty, sustainably grow the economy, and advance gender, racial, disability, and economic justice. In- person attendees will also receive a copy of the book.
