# 77: Lingeng: restaurant work

After arriving in Chinatown NYC in 2002, Lingeng worked in restaurants for 14 years, including the last 9 at the former Zen restaurant in Northampton.  Despite long hours that left little time and energy to build a life in a new country, and pay ranging from $4-$10/hour, he has learned English, gone to college, and been organizing with the Pioneer Valley Worker’s Center.  (AND become a Pedal Person!)    www.pvworkerscenter.org
