*City Advocacy work – continues as our city imagines lifting wages. We are living it out here at Butter through a model that doesn't use tip compensation to provide fair, living wages for our staff. Dan is a part of a group of businesses working with the city on their support for One Fair Wage and small business support. Dan is also lending his support to One Fair Wage campaigns in other parts of the country this year.
*State advocacy efforts– You'll find me working to remove the health care administrative burden from businesses and creating a universal/single payer system. Need a way to get connected? TakeActionMN! Shop your values through Main Street Alliance!
*National advocacy efforts – we’ve joined a national movement of restaurants to offer a refuge from hate – “Sanctuary Restaurant – A Place at the Table for Everyone”
