Your Recommendation For International Women's Day: A NYT Video About Women In The Tipping Industry

In my last newsletter, which was themed after International Women's Day, I asked for recommendations on the best content readers had recently read, listened to, or watched about women, or issues affecting them. Several community members recommended this video.

Published in the New York Times, this op-doc is a haunting look at the challenges facing women who work in the U.S. tipping industry. If you're not from the U.S. you might not know this, but most serving staff only make $2.15 per hour. The rest of their salaries are entirely dependent on tips—a provision meant to help small businesses and promote good customer service. It also makes workers (particularly women) even more vulnerable to sexual harassment and exploitation. This video interviews several female servers in various parts of the country about the types of harassment they routinely face.

It’s eye opening, maddening, and definitely worth watching.
