Take the Sandwich Test!

YOUR SANDWICH MADE BY A HEALTHY RESTAURANT WORKER
YOUR SANDWICH MADE BY A SICK RESTAURANT WORKER

Can't tell the difference?

That's too bad, because almost all restaurant workers don't get paid sick days. Most can't even call in sick.

We hope your immune system is ready, because you're about to take the sandwich test...

Legislation has been filed to provide paid sick days for all Massachusetts workers. But the Massachusetts Restaurant Association (MRA) would like to keep things just the way they are. Their lobbyists are busy at work on Beacon Hill trying to kill the legislation.

Tell the MRA it's time to drop its opposition to providing employees with paid sick days. Call them at 508-303-9905 and let them know what you think. Don't patronize restaurants sporting the MRA sticker. And if you're wondering whether workers at your favorite restaurant get paid sick days – just ask your server!

Restaurant workers – remember that with paid sick days like anything else, what the politicians give us they can just as easily take away. In the long run, the way to improve wages, conditions and benefits in the restaurant industry is by organizing. If you're ready to start, contact the Industrial Workers of the World (IWW) at 617-863-7920.
