Restaurant Workers Get Support


From Worker’s World:

A strong, multinational protest took place on July 19 in front of the Capital Grille on East 42nd Street, a restaurant for the 1%. It was called during “Restaurant Week” by Restaurant Opportunities Center of New York (ROC-NY), to which some Capital Grille workers belong. The nonprofit organization seeks improved working conditions for restaurant workers throughout the city. Occupy Wall Street organizers with “99-Pickets” and activists with Community/Labor United for Postal Jobs and Services, May 1st Coalition for Worker and Immigrant Rights, and other groups joined the lively protest.
