re: #105 Targetpractice

I’ve worked in two restaurants preparing food, and I could never get near the food without washing my hands. Go to the bathroom? Wash your hands. Work the register? Wash your hands. Go to the back to do dishes? Wash your hands. Sweep the floor? Wash your hands. And it wasn’t just a two second deal, you had to lather your hands for 20 seconds and then rinse them under water that was just shy of boiling.

At the first job, the manager would actually time me to make sure I was holding to the regulation. At the second, I had to wash my hands even though I was then putting on gloves to handle the food itself. Lawmakers may think this shit is unnecessary, but the major businesses take it very seriously. Why? Because they are liable for customers getting sick and doubly so if those sick customers then die. It’s not a matter of reputation, it’s a matter of lawsuits. If I neglected to properly wash my hands and a customer subsequently died of food poisoning, being fired was the least of my worries.

I’m sure Tillis will follow up the first change with a second limiting or eliminating tort damage based on food-borne illnesses. :p
