Black applicants are rarely hired at the Capital Grille, the only place within the Darden Restaurants 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 (other brands owned by Darden) to that higher-paid work.
Restaurants that depend on African-American patrons shouldn't engage in hiring and promotions practices that discriminate against us. Please join us in demanding that Darden institute a promotions system that allows Black workers to compete for jobs as servers, bartenders and chefs at the company’s fine-dining restaurants.
