Action at the 2013 Hawaii Food & Wine Festival
The 2013 Hawaii Food & Wine Festival was held at the Modern Honolulu, which has not settled a fair contract with their workers. Modern Honolulu workers and AiKea Movement community volunteers served food and beverages to attendees, with napkins reading, “Food. Wine. Justice” and leaflets to take a moment to think of the hardworking service workers who make Hawaii’s tourism industry possible.
“We are the people who serve your wine, cook your food and clean your tables, and we are asking for your help in supporting local working families.” We asked attendees to ask the Modern to settle a fair contract with their hotel workers.
There are still a few days left of the Hawaii Food & Wine Festival. If you are attending, please ask the Modern Honolulu to settle a fair contract with their workers. Mahalo!
