WAGING CHANGE reveals two American workers’ struggles hidden in plain sight-- the effort to end the federal tipped minimum wage of $2.13 for restaurant servers and bartenders and the #MeToo movement's efforts to end sexual harassment. The film shines a spotlight on the challenges faced by restaurant workers, 70% of whom are women, trying to feed themselves and their families on tips and the growing movement to end the tipped minimum wage.

Featuring Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio- Cortez and Saru Jayaraman, the film highlights the critical role consumers have to play in ending the two-tier wage system.
