“Serving up the surprising truth about waiters and waitresses”
From what we can gather from the 1.5 minute trailer is that this awesome documentary is about the reality of being a server and how the restaurant business actually is – because let’s face it, you have no clue about it until you’re in it . Nine food servers are interviewed and spill their guts on the reality of the crazy amounts of money you could make in one shift, the kinds of tips people leave, the disgustingly low hourly salary rate (and that’s my opinion), and “the dark side of the industry” – alcohol and drug abuse. Not only does it discuss the dramatic side of serving tables, but also the fact that as servers we live off of our tips. Out sick one day? Well then we don’t get paid. No sick days means sometimes having to choose between staying home and getting well or going in sick and running ourselves to the ground just so we can pay our rent.
“Great blog, Marie! You should probably be aware of our soon-to-be-released documentary “Where’s My Food?!” that looks deep inside the world of America’s
hard working and underpaid waiters and waitresses.”
We thought this would be an excellent trailer to show to you all, whether you are in the service industry or not. Take a look and tell us what you think. Don’t forget to follow us on Twitter @WConfessions!
