Paid Sick Days at Restaurants

Hosted by

Chipotle is trying to dig itself out of a public relations nightmare after E. coli and Norovirus outbreaks sickened dozens of its customers last year. To help prevent future outbreaks, the Mexican fast casual chain says it will tighten up food safety measures and offer paid sick days to employees.

But how many restaurants have paid sick days as part of the benefit package? We posed this question to Saru Jayaraman, one of the founders of ROC United and director of the UC Berkeley Food Labor Research Center. Her book Forked: A New Standard for American Dining is out in February.
