Nearly a fifth of the kitchen workforce is Hispanic, according to a recent report by the National Restaurant Association.
Communication between employee and supervisor can be a challenge if they aren't speaking the same language. While taking a class to become fluent in Spanish would be ideal, realistically time and money constraints sometimes won't allow it. What remains can be inefficiency and a not-so-great work environment, not to mention potential safety hazards.
