Event description

Description

Behind the scenes of New York’s bustling restaurant industry, food industry workers face abusive management, sublegal wages and hazardous working conditions. Join The Real News Network for a screening of the award-winning documentary “The Hand That Feeds,” which follows the epic journey of sandwich-maker Mahoma Lopez and his coworkers as they unite to fight for their rights as workers and for basic human dignity.

A panel discussion and Q & A will immediately follow the screening. Panelists and special guest TBA.


About The Hand That Feeds

At a popular bakery café, residents of New York’s Upper East Side get bagels and coffee served with a smile 24 hours a day. But behind the scenes, undocumented immigrant workers face sub-legal wages, dangerous machinery, and abusive managers who will fire them for calling in sick. Mild-mannered sandwich maker Mahoma López has never been interested in politics, but in January 2012, he convinces a small group of his co-workers to fight back.

Risking deportation and the loss of their livelihood, the workers team up with a diverse crew of innovative young organizers and take the unusual step of forming their own independent union, launching themselves on a journey that will test the limits of their resolve.
