ROC-NY's First Annual Hunger Hunt!
EVENT DATE: Sep 21, 2013
Feeling competitive? On Saturday, September 14, ROC-NY supporters will compete in the First Annual ROC-NY Hunger Hunt. Participants will compete for glory, fame, prizes … and to help expose the exploitative conditions New York City’s restaurant workers face.
ROC-NY is dedicated to winning improved wages and working conditions for restaurant workers and raising public recognition of restaurant workers’ contributions to our city. Our members include approximately 5,500 restaurant workers and their families from all parts of the world and from different segments of one of the nation’s fastest growing industries.
We have organized workers at different restaurants all over New York City. Through their collective action, we have won ten major workplace justice campaigns that resulted in more than $6 million in back wages and discrimination payments for workers. Furthermore, these victories have also resulted in important workplace improvements.
But we need your help!! We are a small, grassroots organization, and as such we rely on the grassroots support of justice-hungry people like you. 100% of your donation will go directly towards our work to develop leadership among New York City restaurant workers, to give them the tools needed to fight for better conditions in the industry!
