This week we talk to Alia Todd. Alia played a big part in Tupalo Honey's decision to bring back up the wages of Tupelo Honey's back staff after decreasing them. A veteran of the service industry, Alia was a founder of the Asheville Sustainable Restaurant Workforce. She tells us how A.S.R.W. came about, what their goals for Asheville's restaurants and restaurant workers are, and with the Tupalo campaign over, what's next for A.S.R.W.
