Don Brueggemann, manager of a The Works restaurant in Concord, told NHPR the small, but symbolic discount is meant to highlight the issue of pay inequality.
“In terms of highlighting the issue, I think it’s a relatively inexpensive way to do that," he said. "It’s kind of a clever way, I think. It brings it right to the fore in a way just the statistic does not.”
