Saru Jayaraman, co-founder of Restaurant Opportunities Center (ROC), said at a Women’s Day rally Wednesday in Washington, DC that ROC would “resist” all of President Trump’s labor nominees, saying, “It doesn’t matter how reasonable the other person is.”
Jayaraman touted ROC’s work in defeating Trump’s previous labor nominee, Andy Puzder, but said that victory wasn’t enough.
“It doesn’t matter who else [Trump] nominates. We will still resist. It doesn’t matter how reasonable the other person is or how much less crazy they are, we’re still going to resist,” Jayaraman told the crowd.
“We need so much more than we’ve gotten,” she added.
The Restaurant Opportunities Center describes its mission as being “to improve wages and working conditions for the nation’s restaurant workforce.”
