"Just Dining Guide" scores Madison restaurants on employment standards



MADISON (WKOW) -- When you pick a restaurant, you may consider the food, the cost and the service, but do you ever consider how the restaurant treats its employees?

The Workers' Rights Center and the Interfaith Coalition released its 2nd edition of Madison's only dining guide of employment standards. The new edition will be available in English and Spanish versions and the two organizations are working on an app for smartphones.

The guide rates 182 Madison restaurants on seven quantitative criteria of wages and benefits. Click here to view the "Just Dining Guide."

"We've had a lot of positive feedback,"  said Patrick Hickey, Director of the WRC, "Including recommendations for how to improve the Guide. We've also seen 100% better participation by employers with a lot fewer question marks."
