I SUPPORT ONE FAIR WAGE BECAUSE I want to be a part of legislation that promotes upward economic mobility for my fellow bartenders and servers.
WHAT DOES AN INCREASE TO $12 AN HOUR MEAN TO YOU?
It would allow more economic freedom and ability to support my household. It would also eliminate the need to work multiple jobs and allow more time to spend with my family.
I began working in the industry to supplement the loss of income I experience while taking care of my ill daughter. Although the industry has helped me, I have also experience racism, classism, sexual harassment and verbal abuse from patrons and co-workers and owners. I want to support One Fair Wage to put an end to the manipulation involved with relying on tips.
