Thread: Restaurant

    Default Restaurant

    We purchased a restaurant this year, and so far the most difficult issue is hiring / retaining kitchen staff. It seems they do not have to work while receiving stimulus checks and they are making the most of it.

    I can relate to that. Not too many people want to find a job when they can make more money sitting home. Here if you work less hours you can claim partial unemployment, work 32 hours, get paid 50% for the 8 hours you are not working and while it was still $ 600.00 collect that as well so you were making close to $ 100.00 an hour sitting home that one day.

    When the Covid virus first hit we had one employee tell his co-workers he was not coming back until he absolutely had to. He moved and changed his phone number so we could not get ahold of him to call him back. We sent a certified letter to his last address hoping it would be forwarded. We still heard nothing from him so a few weeks later we took him off the health insurance and were able to do that starting the first of that month. A few days later he was in a bad motorcycle accident breaking his collerbone, let, cracking some ribs and more and had no insurance. That one came back to bite him.

    Here is a suggestion. Why not go to the local college and offer an internship? A Food and Hospitality Internship.
    They will have to learn the entire restaurant business. Perhaps in exchange for the free service they could also really learn the business.
    Or a culinary internship if you need cooks.

    When students are being paid to stay home rather than work, why would they take an internship?
