    and most don't have health insurance or paid sick days. That's true of most everyone in the restaurant industry. As servers and other staff get older, the hard physical work takes a toll. One of my former colleagues had to have both knees replaced a few years ago. She's in her 50's, with no health insurance.

    My daughter is 37, and has tendonitis, carpal tunnel, and possibly some permanent nerve damage from years of working in kitchens. I have a rotator cuff problem I can't do anything about from 20 years of restaurant.
