Financial Stability for Restaurant Workers
You don't have to walk the beaten path to find the life of your dreams
There is no shortage of resources to improve your financial health. Few of them look through the lens of the service industry. I’ve been there. I’ve been shoulder-to-shoulder with so many peers that work incredibly hard and feel like they have little to show for it. How can you budget when you might make $200 one night and $50 the next?

- Income is inconsistent from week to week
- Cash in hand has a way of burning through your wallet

- Balancing instant gratification vs. long term health after a hard shift is easier said than done
Tipped workers are more than twice as likely (and servers almost three times as likely) to fall below the federal poverty line.
