“As a restaurant worker in Asheville, I was working six days a week for 12 hours per day making an average of $5.21 an hour. I don't think the way they were treating us was fair. It is unjust. And it's time to change. Western North Carolina Workers' Center gave me and my co-workers the knowledge needed to recover the un-paid wages owed to us "
