WAGING CHANGE shines a light on an American struggle hidden in plain sight: the women-led movement to end the federal tipped minimum wage for restaurant workers. Most people serving food in U.S. restaurants are paid a federal sub-minimum wage of only $2.13 an hour and are forced to depend on tips to feed themselves and their families. Women, who hold two-thirds of all tip-based jobs, are especially affected. WAGING CHANGE includes a special section on the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and reveals the key role consumers must play in ending this two-tiered wage system.

Directed by Peabody award winner, Abby Ginzberg, and featuring Saru Jayaraman, Lily Tomlin and Jane Fonda.  Winner of Best Documentary from the UNAFF 2020 International Documentary Film Festival, and Best of Show in the Accolade Global Film Competition.

The film is 59 minutes long and includes description of sexual harassment.
