  •  How about a positive movement? (0+ / 0-)

    Instead of boycotts, why don't we consciously reward restaurants that treat their employees well?

    My vision is a standard paragraph on the last page of every menu that goes something like this:

    This restaurant proudly subscribes to the ROLW [I just made that up] pledge. We pay our waitstaff top wages in our industry and extend to them better benefits than others in our business. If you don't believe that, ask them.

    In order to do this, we ask our customers to accept the fact that your meal might cost an extra dollar or two. Remember that the person serving it is your neighbor. If that person makes your meal exceptionally pleasant, please consider tipping him or her generously.
