The restaurant industry has the potential to be extremely high-stress. Working long hours, often without an adequate meal break, dealing with angry customers, covering unwanted shifts and at the end of the day barely scraping by; the service industry can be tiresome and thankless. In the midst of COVID-19 aftermath, people working in the restaurant industry are under even more stress. Restaurant owners are having a difficult time finding staff members and as a result the job has become even more demanding. Rates of substance abuse have always been high in the restaurant industry; according to an article published by the American Medical Association, rates of substance abuse in the restaurant industry have escalated since the COVID-19 pandemic began.
