About the Program

Saru Jayaraman talks about the experiences of food industry workers in the U.S., the second largest private sector workforce in the country.  She says that these individuals, even those who work at restaurants that champion fair-trade food options, are paid the lowest wages and experience some of the worst working conditions of any workers in the country.  Ms. Jayaraman spoke at the Enoch Pratt Free Library in Baltimore.
