A system that relies on exploitation isn’t one that should survive the pandemic. There’s a better way to feed people and care for workers.
Check out this rad article about reimagining the restaurant industry. Full of potent anecdotes woven together by author Marian Bull and published May 21 in The New Republic: founded in 1914 as a journal of opinion which seeks to meet the challenge of a new time. Today, The New Republic is the voice of creative thinkers, united by a collective desire to challenge the status quo. Some tidbits from Marian’s article:
“We need ownership models that challenge the status quo, all along the production line.”
“We need a redistributive model. There’s no way to change what’s wrong in the industry by fussing with the margins.”
“The whole thing about the restaurant industry is that nobody wants to see how the sausage is made.”
