Tell Darden to treat its workers with basic human dignity

Dear Friend,

Darden Restaurant Group, which owns Olive Garden, Red Lobster,
LongHorn Steakhouse and countless other chain restaurants, has about
180,000 employees working at its nearly 2,000 restaurants nationwide

And while the company's CEO makes $8.5 million each year, many of the
company's employees are paid just $2.13 per hour, forcing them to live
on the tips you voluntarily pay them at the end of your meal.

Workers cannot sustain a safe, decent standard of living in our
communities at $2.13 per hour. We stand up against this economic
injustice today.

I just signed a petition telling Darden to stop exploiting its workers
and pay tipped employees at least $5 per hour. Click on the link below
to find out more and sign the petition.
