The Right To Be Treated Like A Human Being at Work

“When everything shut down during COVID-19, I realized how much the place destroyed my mental health.”

I realized working 60+ hour weeks with no sick days, no benefits, zero breaks, and missing every single family holiday just wasn’t worth the measly check that restaurants provide. Once I left, it was almost scary how it felt to work at a job that actually treated me like a human being.
