Cheap Eats, Cheap Labor, Hidden Costs

2017 Fall Symposium: Cheap Eats, Cheap Labor, Hidden Costs from Southern Foodways on Vimeo.

Good Girl Dinette chef and owner Diep Tran spoke at the 2017 Southern Foodways Symposium, presenting on a topic that she began writing about at the Rivendell Writers’ Colony. She argues that “immigrant food is often expected to be cheap, because, implicitly, the labor that produces it has historically been cheap.” But there is a hidden toll for workers.
