Business Profile


  • 1900 Telegraph Ave. Oakland CA 94612
  • Dona Savitsky (Co-owner)

“Owners of Flora, an up-scale restaurant on Telegraph Ave. and 19th St., have cut back on employee perks to cover increased payroll costs [associated with Oakland’s new $12.25 minimum wage.]”

“[Co-owner] Savitsky said that in order to endure the increase in labor costs, she has had to take away employee perks. Previously, during their shift employees could eat whatever they wanted off the menu for free. Now, Savitsky said she is forced to charge them for the cost of the food–about 30 percent of the menu price.”
