A restaurant worker’s work is never complete: many restaurant workers feel that they are public servants because they make harsh comparisons, generalizations and arguments. Barbara Ehrenreich’s piece titled “Serving in Florida” represents the condition in which workers are treated while working in a restaurant. Ehrenreich describes this condition as unfair because she must perform duties as if they are “strictly theatrical exercises” (130). By this she means that even if there is no work left to do, the managers do not want to see workers sitting. Ehrenreich believes that she is performing in a play while she is at work because she must pretend to be doing work at all times so that the managers, who sit around, don’t yell.
Acquiring a job, whether it be in a doctor’s office or a fast-food restaurant, can transform a person. Jobs tend to educate employees, either indirectly or directly, both about themselves and life in general. In Climbing the Golden Arches, nineteen year-old Marissa Nuñez discusses how her employment at McDonald’s transformed her into a mature and skilled employee. Within her personal narrative, Nuñez mentioned how she faced both pleasant and unpleasant circumstances while working at McDonald’s, all which prepared her for her future career. At McDonald’s, Nuñez learned how to fulfill her role of being an employee by becoming an expert at all the placed stations, dealing with the various types of customers she encountered on a daily basis, and
It is important to hire the correct people so that the restaurant will run smoothly without any disorientation. To create a proper hiring process, there are certain steps that need to be followed. According to “Common Good Careers”, the first step in creating a hiring process
Over Serving Alcohol Serving alcohol in restaurants is one of the best ways to make money but it comes with its own set of ethical issues. Ethical issues include; over serving, employees drinking on the job, and patrons being allowed to get out of control. When considering over serving, it’s important for the whole staff to make decisions that are the best for the restaurant as well as the guest. Consistently monitoring how much alcohol is served is the biggest miss, ethically, when it comes to restaurants. Servers are sometimes afraid to make a decision that could cost them tips.
In family owned businesses, nepotism comes to play, and family members are reluctant to let outsiders into their fold. To be successful a business, Plato’s Diner needs to employ qualified manager and accountant. Chris and Dean needs to employ a professional manager to oversee the daily operations of the business since they both lack the skills to do so. Since both brothers are excellent cooks they should stick to that aspect of the business.
The role of the character Adriana is not to belittle women and present them as doubting and immature, but to instead show the experience, power, and importance that women hold within their domestic sphere in the home. In the beginning lines of the second act, Adriana is complaining to her sister Luciana about the tardiness of her husband and the anxiety that it is causing her. One may think that this is an over reactions about something so menial as food, but in the town of Ephesus, the role of a meal has greater meaning than expected. In an article titled “Dining out in Ephesus: Food in The Comedy of Errors”, author Joseph Candido
Hochschild brought up several examples of ways to better equal out the work done by both men and women. While not all the suggestions would be able to work out in the way she predicted, many would alleviate the problems women have to this day. Such as the meal-preparation centers, which would allow for families to not have to bicker or fight on who makes the dinner with premade food that can be picked up. Meals would already be prepared for the parents to pick up after work. The food would
For example, within global design company IDEO, the lack of specialisation is in fact their key to success (Hardagon & Sutton, 1997). While specialisation is sometimes inevitable, it is not always desirable (Bilton, 2007). One may wonder whether specialisation here reflects the narrow definition of creativity, based on the lone individual. According to Hill (2014), too many experts might mean having too many cooks in the kitchen. Further, because of specialisation, a certain thought world is likely to very well understand certain issues, but also to ignore information that may be equally essential to the entire task.
The friendly staff is always close by to answer questions about the food that customers may know very little about. The staff is also a vital part in creating a sense that customers can feel that they are at a true Mexican restaurant. From their outgoing and colorful outfits to the Spanish language that they enjoy speaking to the customers the effort is shown by the staff. The food that began the meal was outstanding and something that many can appreciate considering the lack of true Mexican restaurants in the area. Unfortunately, the main course couldn’t continue the momentum that the chips and salsa along with the chicken taquitos had set forward.
Ruby Tuesday’s Mission statement is Quality, Passion and Pride. When it comes to eating there I would expect the employee to know the mission statement and what it means. This is what the company stands for and if they don’t know it they very well could not be fulfilling the company’s objective. I have seen many of the waitress exhibit these behaviors and relay they know what their company promises. Mostly Quality, they ask how the meal is and if something is wrong they don’t hesitate to take it back to the kitchen to make sure it is right.
As a past manager myself it is safe to say that the current generation of workers do not hold such values in their hearts. The passion for the job has to be there or you will end up with people who don’t care to serve cold fries to a paying customer, employees that don’t bother to go around to ask you how your meal is, or employees that will send a burnt burger into the hands of a customer. Hiring the right type of people is hard, but to ensure everyone leaves happy is a must. Regarding time consumption and prices, we as consumers decide how much money we are willing spend on an item. We also decide how much time we are willing to invest on said item.
Thank you for sending Valma Murphy back to see me some three years since I was last involved in her care, when she underwent a left total hip joint replacement. As you are aware, Valma is generally in good health but does have an extensive orthopaedic history and did develop a pulmonary embolus a few months following the right total hip joint replacement. She was treated with warfarin for around five years. Of late, Valma reports no cardiorespiratory issues, no current gastro-intestinal or genito-urinary symptoms. There are features suggestive of sleep apnoea.
Andrew Rose is his name, and he is my best friend. Of all the personalities with which I had surround myself, his was unlike any other. His attitude towards life was humorous and yet remained appropriate which was a relief from those who used inappropriate jest. His approach to life reminded me it is possible for someone to be funny while not sacrificing their morals. His effortless use of vocabulary backed by his grounded cordial character left an influence on me till this day.
When it comes to Aristotle’s Nicomachean Ethics, I believe that he has found a common thread in humanity in the fact that humans strive for the moderate in living virtuously. However, I would argue that the thread is varied enough to have no true worth in discerning the aspects of humanity. People have too different moralities and goals. Because Aristotle allows for these “local variations”, as Martha Nussbaum later terms in her defense of Aristotle, he is acknowledging that there cannot be an overarching analysis of humanity.
