The Hand that Feeds
Directed by Rachel Lears & Robin Blotnick
You’ve seen the headlines; you may have seen the picket lines; but you may not have had a chance to understand the plight of the modern day food service worker. So a humble, very shy sandwich maker named Mahoma Lopez, begins his tale. It’s a tale about an undocumented employee uniting his coworkers to fight against the abusive conditions at a popular New York restaurant chain. This epic power struggle turns a single city block into a battlefield in America’s new wage wars, and becomes the microcosm of an even greater issue.
