Afro Deli is one of the restaurants in favor of earned sick and safe time for its employees.

Much of the conversation around the recently proffered Working Families Agenda — a proposal for fairer scheduling and paid sick leave — was focused around restaurant owners who were against the measures.

While many food business owners were in favor of parts of the proposal (earned sick and family time) they also thought the plan was too onerous and too swift. They worried that some of the language, especially the bits about scheduling predictability and pay for scheduling unpredictability, seemed unrealistic and perhaps even detrimental to small businesses. 

But other restaurants, including The Birchwood Cafe and Common Roots, came out in favor of the proposal, or at least large swaths of it, and now Mainstreet Alliance (a national organization that works with small businesses on public policy issues) has cataloged those businesses for you.
