Several of those "persons in charge" barely are able to speak English. Let's be real here. Ah, yes, don't forget the teenagers and druggie slackers working.

We all know there are some.

Do any of these people go through formal training , and why isn't it required before opening up an eatery?




... 'ey... don't blame the prep help ...I always ask to review the surveillance camera footage before I bite in to my burgers...


In fast food as well as so many other industries..
The top management are college graduates, (friends, family, associates) with business knowledge degrees..
Not in knowledge of "the business".
