Just Dining: Updated!

Madison’s Guide to Isthmus Restaurant Employment Standards
3rd Edition Release

Do you know whether your waiter has access to health insurance and a living wage? Sick day pay? Written hourly records and employee policies, and other workplace benefits?

December 11, 2014, The Interfaith Coalition for Worker Justice and the Workers’ Rights Center release the 3rd edition of the Just Dining Guide, a guide to the employment standards of 205 Downtown Madison restaurants. Through information gathered from employee and employer surveys, we are proud to bring Madison an updated guide that points out and celebrates the employers providing good jobs in Madison’s restaurant industry. This year the producers of the Guide will award certificates to 15% of the employers listed in the Guide, for their upstanding treatment of employees. ICWJ director Rabbi Renee Bauer comments, “We are lucky to have exemplary employers in our city, and we must support them.”

During this season of celebrations and festive meals, let the Just Dining Guide be a reminder that you are more than “just dining;” you are supporting jobs and workers in the Madison community. Look at Just Dining to Guide your support of good jobs in Madison restaurants.

Look for this Guide update in community centers, libraries, etc. near you.
