Homegrown Protest

Joey Quits
Providence resident Joey Defrancesco became an Internet sensation last fall after he posted a video ("Joey Quits", below) of himself quitting his job at the Marriott Rennaisance in Providence with some help from his band. Joey was featured on Good Morning America, CNN, TIME, and the Huffington Post- and to date, the video has more than 3 million hits. Joey has since been working to turn his popularity into a workers' rights campaign. DeFrancesco has teamed up with Rhode Island State Rep. Chris Blazejewski to create a bill that would prohibit tip theft in the state. The bill, which was entered into the legislature on Monday, will ban any employer, manager, or supervisor from demanding, requesting, or accepting tips from an employee.
