You’d think that folks who work in Restaurants are more careful than anyone, not to come in when they’re sick. 🤒 Unfortunately though, it is extremely difficult to take a sick day when employed in #Foodservices. 🥺 🤧 ❤️🔥
Often there will be a lot of pressure from management and others, to come in, regardless of your health or symptoms. 🤢 During the past decade, I’ve honestly seen hundreds of Restaurant workers on the job while ill. 🤕 😪 🍔
Obviously great hygiene, like masks and hand washing, can help prevent the spread of illness, and everyone handling food and beverages should follow as many safety guidelines as possible at all times, even when they’re healthy!! 💧🧼
As a very very very germ conscious person, I would be adamant about avoiding spreading illness when working in Restaurants personally, and luckily usually found someone to switch shifts with me, or pick mine up. 🤵🏻♀️📆 I worked hard to stay healthy, and never wanted to put any Customers in danger. It’s great to step in for coworkers who need you to cover sometimes, when you can, so that when you’re unable to come in, you have a couple favors to use and the Restaurant stays fully staffed. 👯♀️
You would be SHOCKED at the way hygiene rules in Restaurants would be broken before Covid. 🥴 I’ve seen some changes and improvements since then, but that doesn’t mean Restaurants are willing to be Short Staffed just because someone isn’t feeling their best. That guilt of causing strife and extra work for your coworkers by calling off is a HUGE motivator to get Staff to come in to work, and keep serving Food and Drinks while under the weather! 😓 ⛈ 🌬
Things have changed in millions of ways since the Pandemic started, but needing more sick days away from work have been one of the biggest changes for us all! This virus is going to be part of the rest of our whole lives, and most of us will get it over and over, many times. 😭
Working from Home has opened up a lot of new doors for flexibility when it comes to work, but it can still be hard to work from home when you’re feeling sick. 🛋 💻 😵💫 ☕️
Does your job let you take time off when you’re sick? Do you come into work anyway when you are sick? How often do you need to stay home these days? Are you able to work from home when you aren’t feeling well?? 😮💨🥴
Slow season is coming for most restaurants in the east and midwest states. January and February are the slowest time of the year for the hospitality world. 🧑🍳🍽️🍷🙏🏼
As a restaurant worker, it is better to save money from the busy summer. Less shift and less money! 💸🧑🍳🍽️
