According to Health Day, 28,000 teenagers seek emergency medical care every year due to an injury or illness suffered while working in a fast food restaurant.
The injury and illness rate among fast food workers is 107.6 per 10,000, which means that fast food workers are injured 30% more often than other employees in the food industry. There are several different reasons why workplace injuries can occur at a higher rate in the fast food industry, including the rapid pace of service and the lack of proper training. In addition to workplace injuries, fast food workers also face other challenges such as low wages and inadequate benefits. In response to these issues, McDonald's workers in at least ten major cities are planning a strike in protest of wages, benefits and workplace safety regulations. It's understandable that you may feel frustrated with your fast food job and want to leave without warning.
