Waging Change Premiere on KQED Start Date: Friday 2/19/2021 — End Date: Friday 2/19/2021 Admission:FREE WAGING CHANGE, a timely new documentary about the tipped minimum wage and the pandemic’s impact on restaurant workers and the industry, directed by Peabody award-winner, Abby Ginzberg, will have its SF/Bay Area broadcast premiere on KQED on Friday, Feb. 19, 2021 at 8:00 PM. WAGING CHANGE shines a unique spotlight on the challenges faced by restaurant workers trying to feed themselves and their families off tips by weaving together stories of individuals, such as Nataki Rhodes of Chicago, Andrea Velasquez of Detroit and Wardell Harvey of New Orleans with the growing movement to end the tipped minimum wage. Featuring Saru Jayaraman, Lily Tomlin, Jane Fonda and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio Cortez, the film reveals an American workers’ struggle hidden in plain sight– the effort to end the federal tipped minimum wage of $2.13 for restaurant servers and bartenders and the #MeToo movement's efforts to end sexual harassment.
