May Meetup: The Politics of Restaurant Workers- 4 Article Exploration

May Book Club is a Book Club Twist… 

We are focusing on 4 Published (short) Articles on Restaurant Workers. With the Restaurant Association pushing for a bill that would apply different minimum wage laws to tipped workers, it is worth some thoughtful consideration!

We’re mixing it up a bit this month by reading three articles addressing the politics of workers in restaurants! The reading is short, but the discussion will be rich.

See Below for PDFs of the Articles!
