We see your long hours, your tired feet, your infinite patience. We know about the poor tippers, short staff, the grueling hours and the weeks without a day off. We get it, working for the public is hard. Being a part of the service industry is tough work. There are good days and bad days, dealing with the public is sometimes uplifting, often heartbreaking.

Seeing the same customers day in a day out is both good and bad, the boredom of the same-old-same-old balanced by the goodness of having a tribe. The upside is the opportunity to make someone smile, the simple act of treating a customer with kindness makes the world a better place. Sometimes you have to dig deep to find the gumption to stay positive.

But we see you.

Working in the service industry is not just a means to support yourself. In many instances, it is a passion or a calling. Getting up every day to serve the public takes fortitude, and we see your dedication and determination.

Many of you are saving lives, helping the less fortunate, feeding the hungry while balancing care for family and friends. Some of you are working second jobs that leave you unfulfilled but able to pay the bills.

We see you.
