    "Sustainability is about contributing to a society that everybody benefits from, not just going organic because you don't want to die from cancer or have a difficult pregnancy."

    How do restaurant workers live on some of the lowest wages in America? And how do poor working conditions-discriminatory labor practices, exploitation, and unsanitary kitchens-affect the meals that arrive at our restaurant tables?

    Saru Jayaraman, who launched the national restaurant workers' organization Restaurant Opportunities Centers United, set out to answer these questions by following the lives of restaurant workers in New York City, Washington, D.C., Philadelphia, Los Angeles, Chicago, Houston, Miami, Detroit, and New Orleans.

    Join us for a discussion with Jayaraman about her groundbreaking exploration of the political, economic, and moral implications of dining out.
     

    Co-sponsored by the First Parish Social Action Team.
