Restaurant Opportunities Center
Founded in June 2008 and based in Detroit, the Restaurant Opportunities Center of Michigan (ROC-MI), is an affiliate of Restaurant Opportunities Centers United.Our mission is to improve working conditions and opportunities for advancement of Michigan restaurant workers.ROC-MI uses a unique, tri-pronged model to achieve systems-change that includes:
(1) workplace justice campaigns to move restaurant companies that take the low-road to profitability;
(2) promoting the high-road to profitability through partnerships with responsible employers and workforce development programs that move low-income workers into living wage jobs; and
(3) participatory research and policy work that lift standards industry-wide.
