Tell Darden: No More Segregated Restaurants ACTION

Black applicants are rarely hired at the Capital Grille, the only place within the company where workers can earn a living wage. And there's no clear pipeline for workers to get from jobs at Red Lobster and Olive Garden to that higher-paid work.

Is this not against the law? I would fully support a boycott of the restaurants until a response has been received.

Please sign this petition close to my heart:
ALMOST REACHED THE GOAL # ! Thank you everyone!

Long ago in another career, I was a manager in a restaurant. This was in Hawaii so maybe because whites are on the other end of the stick here, I NEVER saw this. I worked both the positions. I waited tables at one place. I managed in another. I saw NO discrimination here. Too bad that this is still happening on the mainland.

Employment discrimination has been illegal in the U.S. since the passage of the 1964 Civil Rights Act. This situation looks like another example of the corporate elite trying to wipe out the rule of law and replace it with the rule of corporations. Signed and shared, thanks!

As, I had no problem eliminating my visits to Panera, I will have no probem eliminating ANY of Darden's restaurants, from future visits. Fortunately, there are many good restaurants from which to choose.
