I work in a very busy popular restaurant in Hot sunny South Florida. We are required to wear long sleeves and our shirt buttoned in 90-100 degree weather with patio seating. Our shirts are a blend of polyester and cotton, and Do not breathe!!! We feel at times as if we will suffer from heatstroke. Numerous complaints to the owners and mgmt. are greeted with a "There is the door" attitude. As we have morgtage payments like everyone else, and this is the best $ place to work in, we suffer suffer suffer. The kitchen in most restaurants have no air conditioning. Try 1 day at the office under these conditions!!!! We cannot even unbutton the top button when it is 95 degrees out!!!Perhaps if some of our customers would write to the owners this would change. Have a heart!!!! Things are not always as they seem!!! It is one thing if your waiter is unshaven, smelly, wrinkled, or sloppy in appearance, it is another when they are perspiring because of the image the restaurant want's to project. If a waiter is sweating profusely, what does this tell you about his working conditions?
