Why Back of House Workers Are The Backbone of Restaurants
The food industry would not exist without immigrant Back of House restaurant workers. From line cooks to dishwashers - they play a crucial role in any satisfying restaurant experience. However, even though they are considered essential, they are often excluded and ineligible to receive any government aid or support due to their citizenship status. In this episode of Hungry for More, we highlight the Los Angeles organization No Us Without You. Started by founders Damian Diaz and Othón Nolasco, their mission is to provide aid and food security to the undocumented workers fulfilling thankless roles in the hospitality community. We hear first hand from the back of house workers working to support their families, and restaurants like Casa Vega, cultivating a positive work environment for generations of their hard-working immigrant staff.
