Because it’s a heavy reminder that the restaurants we all enjoy eating in, usually have staff who are feeling rundown, stressed, and exhausted, but don’t have the time to take a break in order to fuel their bodies.

Now, usually when we eat out at restaurants a lot of us forget that behind an enjoyable meal are chefs and waiter staff who are usually trying their best to meet every customer’s standards…

And sometimes, when those standards aren’t met, we forget that they too, are human, and could probably do with a little slack being cut for them.

The food serving industry has always been a stressful environment to work in, as is any job that involves customer service…

But, add on the fact that restaurant staff are now working in a time where the Coronavirus is still spreading, and you’ve got an understaffed environment, with overworked employees, and it becomes a lot more stressful.

Oh, and in a lot of restaurants, breaks aren’t always a given, unless you’re a minor.

According to Medium, that’s: “Just how the industry works,” too.
In fact, it’s up to the employer how often staff members get a break, as per BizFluent.

And so, here’s the video that disgusted over 7 million internet users.

In the caption of the video, it says: “Chefs deserve better, let’s work together to give chefs the proper breaks and time to eat.”

It absolutely breaks our hearts that this is deemed as an acceptable environment.

And we really do hope more awareness is spread about the stress caused by working in the industry of food.
