Re: “Hanna Raskin reveals illegal labor practices in Charleston’s food and beverage community

Kinsey, I'm sorry you didn't call me to discuss the story. I would have been happy to explain that the Mexican restaurant violations originated with non-local owners, and were extensions of investigations conducted in other cities around the state. Since my foremost responsibility is covering Charleston, I chose to focus on those audits which affected the restaurant owners, workers and diners who live here.

Until every restaurant employee is fairly compensated for his or her work, we'll still need more ink to cover "the plight of casual and fast food workers fighting for higher wages." But I think it's equally important to examine the high-end restaurants which hold themselves up as exemplars of quality in every sphere -- and have the awards and press coverage to show for it.

The great thing about the emergence of chef celebrity is chefs now have a platform for making real and lasting changes to our food system. If celebrity chefs can do for line cooks what they've done for farmers, the Department of Labor will soon have far less to do.
