Today, a $4 million dollar settlement and workplace agreement for restaurant workers at Yank Sing, a nationally rated dim sum restaurant, is being announced by workers and their employer. The settlement was the result of a unique collaboration between workers, Yank Sing, the Chinese Progressive Association, the Asian Law Caucus, and state and local labor enforcement agencies. The landmark settlement not only compensates for past practices, but provides workers with pay and benefits beyond what the law requires while creating a business model that will lead to long term success for both workers and the restaurant.
CPA community organizer and artist, Ka Yan Cheung, created "For Our Families: A Chinese Immigrant Woman Tells her Story". This story details the struggles of a Chinese immigrant woman and her family's attempts to secure a better future by immigrating from mainland China to Macau and finally San Francisco.
