The California Table

California State Controller Betty Yee launched her new podcast, The California Table — a new monthly series featuring community voices often missing at institutional policy or funding decision-making tables. Yee's debut podcast episode “On the High-Road: Righting the Restaurant Industry" features a must-hear discussion with Saru Jayaraman, President of One Fair Wage, Co-Founder of the Restaurant Opportunities Centers United (ROC United), and Director of the Food Labor Research Center at the University of California, Berkeley. Jayaraman, an outspoken leader in exposing the vulnerability of restaurant workers — pre- and post-COVID-19 — joins Betty to discuss the history of tipped-wage work and reimagining the restaurant industry as it emerges from the economic devastation of the pandemic. The California Table airs the first Monday of each month and features Californians making a difference by tackling difficult issues with individual and collective action. Paid for by Betty Yee for Treasurer 2026 (FPPC ID #1417532).... Show More
