After 9/11, together with displaced World Trade Center workers, Saru Jayaraman co-founded the Restaurant Opportunities Center (ROC), which grew into a national movement of restaurant workers, employers and consumers. She then launched One Fair Wage as a national campaign to end all subminimum wages in the United States.

This soon inspired her book, "One Fair Wage: Ending Subminimum Pay in America" which advocates for an end to all subminimum wages in the United States and an increased sustainability of wages/working conditions throughout the service sector.

"One Fair Wage: Ending Subminimum Pay in America", is a call to action to join the fight for
a One Fair Wage policy that requires all employers to pay the full minimum wage with fair, non-discriminatory tips on top, while lifting millions of subminimum wage workers nationally out of poverty.
