The Restaurant Opportunities Centers (ROC) were founded in 2001 by immigration attorney Saru Jayaraman along with some restaurant workers who survived the attack on the World Trade Center in New York. Ostensibly, they organized to help restaurant workers recover from the terrorist attacks and organize moving forward. They were funded by a number of foundations, but quickly became more radical in their campaigns and tactics. They function essentially as a union, but don’t operate within the laws that govern unions across the country. It somehow seems fitting then that they would retain “Hanoi Jane” Fonda in a video speaking against new tip rule provisions being proposed by the Trump administration. Fonda aided the North Vietnamese Army during the Vietnam War with propaganda broadcasts and even firing anti-aircraft guns from Hanoi.
