A Note From Jacob Schnitzer
Posted on 07/14/2011 @ 03:00 PM
This morning each group went to their service sites for the first time. At my site, Restaurant Opportunities Center, we learned about labor issues concerning those involved with the restaurant industry. The organization aims to fight the prejudice, sub-par pay, and poor work conditions that often exist behind closed doors in restaurants around the country. Though not a union, R.O.C. helps restaurant workers to stand up for their legal rights and to advocate for law that better protects their innate human rights.
After just one day, we are all very excited to have the opportunity to help out this organization. Ten days and counting to make a difference in D.C.!!!
