As much as I love cooking and being in a kitchen, there are some downfalls. One of those downfalls is not owning your own restaurant! Sometimes, working for someone else can be very difficult. The most difficult part of it is the way they treat you. Some owners don't even see their workers as people, they see them as slaves. I worked for someone, who after 6 months still couldn't remember my name and I talked with this person every day! Some owners really take advantage of their workers, very little pay and working very long hours. But the worst of it is that it wouldn't be so bad if every once in awhile they tell their staff they're doing a good job or just a simple thank you would suffice. But alas, this is one of the true realities of the restaurant industry: many owners only see the $$$$$ and not the people behind them.
