Letter: Why don't deli workers wear gloves?

To the editor:

Did you know that every restaurant has at least one person who has completed a ServSafe certification course? The class teaches how to protect you, the public, from any food-related problems. The fast-food restaurant chains do a great job having their food handlers wear gloves — which is one of the best ways to protect customers. By contrast, most of the individually owned sub and pizza shops that I have visited do NOT have food handlers with gloves.

What’s a concerned citizen supposed to do? Tell the manager that you may have to find a more responsible place to eat? Using gloves is the law and an easier way to retain customers.
