View Diary: What restaurants should you eat in if you care about workers? (100 comments)

  •  It's small promotions (7+ / 0-)

    For example, at 5 Guys, I believe if you envision their restaurant's employees, what you actually see is at least 2 different classifications - counter/cashier + fries/toppings, and then the grill guy, with the grill guy position being the highest level.  It's probably just a difference of $.25 - $.50 per hour. Also, I believe one of the workers is either a supervisor, or senior line position.

    Then, add in the fact that many of their employees are students and turnover in this industry for these type positions is a good 25% - 35%, I can see that at least 50% of their workers do get a promotion.

        Best burgers anywhere.
