The article in the Capital said this about another local Victoria restaurant. Why is the attention focused only on Chuck's.
After moving to Victoria, Shelby took a yearlong hiatus from the industry and then started working at 10 Acres Restaurant Group in 2019.She describes a toxic workplace culture in which female front-of-house staff regularly had to contend with customers who made lewd comments and even sometimes touched or grabbed them—with what she says was the tacit approval of their supervisors.“Managers were on the floor, managers were listening to this, managers were seeing this very clearly,” she says, “and there was never any attempt to help us out of that situation or to address the situation afterwards. It would always kind of be like, ‘Oh well their bill is $300, so just brush it off and go to your next table.’ I think that’s one of the main issues with the industry: if you’re bringing in money and spending money, a lot of the time managers and owners would just look the other way."
We're only going to hear more stories like this coming out of the industry.
Not only is it upsetting that owners/management allow this type of behaviour to happen, but that customers think it's ok to act this way. It's ridiculous.
