Service workers are bearing the brunt of the economic crisis caused by coronavirus. You can help!

Tipped workers and service workers were already struggling. In this crisis, they need our help.
Under federal law, tipped workers can be paid a sub-minimum wage. Tips are supposed to make up the difference, but they often don’t. And because of a policy that’s literally a holdover from the slavery era, our nations’ largest workforce of women of color work hard all day for pocket change. Which means when a crisis hits, and tips disappear, they’ve got nothing.
Because the federal tipped minimum wage is *still* just $2.13/hour, we're trying to raise $213,000 to give no-strings-attached cash assistance to tipped restaurant workers, delivery drivers, personal service workers and others affected by coronavirus and the economic downturn. Your small donation will make a huge difference in the lives of tens of thousands of workers being hit hardest in this crisis. We need your help.
Please note, workers who are already involved as members of One Fair Wage or sign up with One Fair Wage and participate in a confirmation interview with one of our organizers will be qualified to receive assistance.
With your help, families already on the margins before this pandemic will be able to stay in their homes, put food on the table and afford health care. Please give what you can.
FINE PRINT: One Fair Wage is fiscally sponsored by the Alliance for a Just Society, which will process all tax-deductible donations. The One Fair Wage campaign will deduct an administrative fee and any unspent funds will support tipped worker organizing and advocacy efforts. For more information, go to https://ofwemergencyfund.org
