The hardworking staff of OMG are left without work during the COVID19 mandatory shut down of bars and clubs by the California government.
OMG is committed to paying the staff $5 per hour for the scheduled hours that they would have worked if we were open. Granted that is not nearly enough for them to live on, pay rent and other expenses, considering they depend heavily on tips plus their hourly wages. However, even earning $5 an hour will at least get them basic essentials like food to sustain themselves through these tough times until we reopen. We have a lot of overheads to pay too and we could use some help during these tough times
So, we come to you for help. If you can and if you continue to make your regular income during this crisis, and you want to help out our dear OMG staff, any donation would add to their ability to sustain them temporarily. I urge you to donate a small portion of the amount you would have spent at the bar if the bar was open, or the tips you would have given them if the bar was open. Every little bit adds up and we will be grateful to you all. If you can't donate at this time, that's no problem. We still love you dearly and will see you when we reopen. Meanwhile, stay safe, stay healthy and take care.
Lots of love
