We’d like to warn our listeners that some of the material in this episode can be triggering, but though challenging, conversations about abuse in the restaurant industry need to happen so that change can take root. Restaurant workers are some of the most vulnerable people in the workforce, so how do we examine and destroy the culture of abuse when workers don’t feel safe reporting it? In the first half of the show Cristina talks with Eater.com Editor Monica Burton to discuss her experience writing about the movement. Then, Cristina talks to Trish Nelson who bravely shares her experience of abuse by her boss at New York City Eatery, Spotted Pig.
