Ive been in restaurants for 20 years. I once saw a cook smack a girl in the face with a dough penis and pop a half & half creamer on her immediately after for effect. He got a talking to. Thats it.
I don't know what other industries are like, but I assume lewd conduct happens in all fields. And if so, restaurants might be the most egregious of them all for inappropriate behavior, save for only the porn industry.
In fact I have never worked somewhere where the chef wasn't banging any given number of females in the establishment.
In summary, the only thing that shocks me about this is more women didn't come forward in the expose. Im sure more will soon.
Oh, I'd put my life savings on it. Although I'm out now, I've got about 4 years less than you and I've got STORIES, as I'm sure you do. Hell, if this spreads(as it should) and women start coming forward about other celebrity chefs, non-famous, and kitchen staff the restaurant industry in this country may well come to a grinding halt.
