Creating just working conditions for restaurant workers
'Colors-Detroit' is strengthening the city from the grassroots by providing job opportunities for the community’s unemployed residents.
Colors is not just any restaurant. It’s a restaurant with a strong mission to create fair and just working conditions for restaurant workers.
Colors is a project of the Restaurant Opportunities Center of Michigan, which is part of a nationwide movement to create fair and just working conditions for restaurant workers.
ROC-Michigan's research indicates that workers of color tend to be concentrated in the lowest-paying jobs in the restaurant industry and they are the ones most likely to have their rights violated.
Chef Phil Jones is head chef and general manager of Colors, which is located in the Paradise Valley area of downtown Detroit. You might know it as Harmonie Park right near the Detroit Opera House.
