Is a restaurant worth its conscionable weight if it never has enough capitol/care/time to offer its employees health insurance? "Do you ask the waiter if the chicken is free-range if you don't care whether he/she's making a living wage? Can you say you believe in immigrant's rights if you eat in a restaurant that hires undocumented workers because they're cheaper and won't complain about low wages/lack of healthcare/unbearable working conditions/boring, repetitive tasks/long hours without overtime? Can you preach the Organic values of a restaurant whose kitchen is 25% unpaid 'volunteer' workers?" Shuna asks if the public is ready for a transparent restaurant industry. I wonder if they're ready for the price increases that would accompany it.
