In America, food service jobs do not provide paid sick leave to servers, kitchen workers and even managers. Unfortunately though, many food service jobs pay low wages so it creates a huge hardship on employees if they are sick. Being in the front line of food service, these workers have a legal and moral obligation to not handle food if sick and are forced to either not work for the day or try and work under the radar.
Food Safety is extremely important and runs through every industry from fast food chains & convenience stores to farms & butcher shops. Food Service Employees sacrifice their own financial hardship for the health & safety of others on a daily basis across the US. These sacrifices are what prevent serious outbreaks such as Ecoli, Salmonella and Listeria.
