A new Philly restaurant is doing something virtually unheard of… compensating its wait staff fairly. Girard Brasserie and Bruncherie is paying $13/hr plus vacation, sick and health insurance. What’s the catch? Co-owner, Brian Oliveira, is willing to make less money, in order to have happy employees. Now there’s some food for thought.
Next time I’m in Philly visiting my daughter, I’m going to patronize this new establishment and shake his hand.
