Director Patrick Hickey has protested apartheid, fought against Reaganomics, and witnessed the American population transform over the decades. Yet through all those years, one topic has always been the focal point of any movement: workers rights. It was the next battle on the list for Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. before his assassination so many years ago. Mr. Hickey has taken on that battle here in Madison by establishing the Worker’s Rights Center. He spoke with us about immigration issues, the importance of knowing where you money goes, and the many challenges facing workers today.
Here Mr. Hickey discusses the Madison restaurant industry and where Madisonians can get a bite to eat without worrying where their money is going. More from Mr. Hickey coming soon!
