WORLD PREMIERE The National Restaurant Association, the “other NRA,” has lobbied the government to keep the federal minimum wage for tipped workers at $2.13 an hour since 1991. Facing off against this powerful lobby is Saru Jayaraman of Restaurant Opportunities Centers United, who mobilizes grassroots support for a national movement to fight for one fair wage. Candid profiles of restaurant workers and their struggles to make ends meet underline the urgency to address this inequality.
