What Are D.C.’s Most Worker-Friendly Restaurants? (Hint: Not Clyde’s)
A national restaurant workers’ organization on Thursday unveiled a handy new dining guide. This one rates restaurants not on their food, service and decor but instead on working conditions: things like wages, paid sick leave, occupational segregation—appetizing topics like that. A number of D.C.-area eateries are featured in the guide, not always in a positive way. The local businesses earning the highest marks for their worker-friendly policies include Busboys & Poets, Ben's Chili Bowl, Five Guys, Jack Rose, and virtually every eatery under José Andrés' Think Food Group umbrella (America Eats Tavern, Oyamel, Jaleo, Zaytinya). One business not faring so well in the guide: Clyde's, which scored a big fat zero in every category but one (non-tipped wages, where it earns a question mark for unknown). Y&H has reached out to Clyde's Restaurant Group for comment. Read the guide for yourself here.
