SO LONG TIME WORKING HOUR
Why do chefs have to work so long time
Poor working condition
I have to work at least 10 hours over and usually work 12 hours per a day. According to Gateway Gourmet, " one of the first things every new or aspiring chef hears is how long the work days are. Chefs and cooks are notorious for working between 50 and 70 hours per week, oftentimes on weekends, evenings, and for up to 12 hours per day. The rate of burnout is high, and many cooks suffer from physical problems that make it difficult to stay in the field for an entire lifetime."

According to CHEF SANDWICH, "Nathan, 23, became so exhausted after working 100 hours a week as sous chef at the Tate Modern, he died after contracting tonsillitis, his distraught family said. He came down with a sore throat but continued to work 14 hours a day - 98 hours a week - for 27 straight days without any time off, it has emerged.
He died in his sleep, and doctors say his immune system had simply shut down."
The serious problems is that there are a lot of students who don't know how chef is difficult job. As a result, so many students will be chef who have to work long time or give up the job.
I also have seen so many chefs who are married change their job because they do not have time to stay their family.
The reason A chef has to work long time
- To learn high skill, so they sacrifice themselves.
- A chef gets low wage comparatively than other jobs
- There are so many extra jobs in the kitchen
- Health problems
- No family time
- Change the job
