I'm doubling down your tip!
You may be here because you served me at a restaurant, and your receipt had a link in the back.… Here’s why I did that:
So, I decided back in the spring of 2018 that I was going to double down the tips I gave (from then on) and give that to the ROC United. There are two reasons for this: (1) Given my economic situation 2 , this is a good way for me contribute to the ROC United, and (2) by sharing this I can hopefully create awareness.
I know you are more than aware about the injustices you are being subjected to, and that if I wanted to create awareness, you are the last person I need to tell about this. But, I thought it would be appropriate if I used tip money to raise awareness about the horrible tip system.
In the spreadsheet below, you can see my donation record and you may find your contribution to the ROC United. Feel free to leave a comment.
If you are not familiar with ROC united I highly recommend you take a look at their mission. Their goal is to “improve wages and working conditions for the nation’s restaurant workforce”, and they are constantly raising awareness about all the injustices committed by the restaurant industry—from the lack of benefits to the abundance of sexual harassment cases—among other difficult discussions about your line of work. ↩
Not so good... ↩
