just in time for Valentine's Day....

Show your Server some Love

Sponsored by the Georgia Minimum Wage Coalition

Join us in support of restoring the minimum wage for tipped workers (currently $2.13/hr) to 60% of the minimum wage.

Where: Danneman’s Coffee Shop
466 Edgewood Ave.
Atlanta, GA 30312

When: Friday, February 13th (2/13!)
11:00 A.M.

Reasons to come (according to Anni):
1. Women like you will speak in support of raising the minimum wage for tipped workers! You'll hear about their experiences working for minimum wage - and you might be surprised by what they have to say!
2. Support a local business! Danneman's website boasts "great local micro-roasted coffee" and "good... food at moderate prices," as well as well as a space featuring "tall ceilings, handsome woodwork, large vintage windows, and midcentury furnishings such as lab tables and Navy chairs." Come check it out! (For more information: www.dannemans com.)

This is a great opportunity to support the people you come in contact with on a daily or weekly basis, if you're lucky enough to eat out often. Not every server works in a fancy Buckhead restaurant. There are many chains and family owned restaurants that servers work in througout the state. We can't forget these hard-working folks. If you can't tip extra, be nice by limiting those special requests and crazy demands!! You know what I'm talking about.....

You're also welcome to join us for lunch after the event... it'll be right next door to Danneman's at Corner Tavern. (Lunch NOT provided by 9to5 or the coalition!) Come support another great local business and socialize even MORE with other supporters of a higher minimum wage!
