Open Sesame is a progressive business that tries to promote social justice. How could it do that without treating its own employees properly? It would be impossible for Open Sesame to present the exhibitions, concerts, and other programs it offers without the talent and expertise of our staff. Recognizing the value of their labour seems like a good business decision as well as the right thing to do.
