In this edition of Moyers & Company, Saru Jayaraman - who marched on Washington with restaurant workers struggling to make ends meet - joins Bill to talk about how we can best support these workers' right to a fair wage. Jayaraman is the cofounder and codirector of the Restaurant Opportunities Centers United, which works to improve pay and working conditions for America's ten million-plus restaurant workers. She is also the author of Behind the Kitchen Door, an insider's exposé of the restaurant industry. An essay on predatory capitalism and the One Percent concludes the program.
