    Study Shows That LA’s Fast Food Workers Run Higher Risk of Contracting COVID-19

    Last week, UCLA published a study that examined fast food restaurant workers in Los Angeles, showing how fast food employees often experience challenging work conditions and ultimately run a higher risk of contracting COVID-19 due to labor violations. LA’s fast food workers number approximately 150,000, and are mostly women and minorities. These employees are also in charge of enforcing COVID-19 safety protocols, while working within close proximity to each other, especially cooks, who have the highest COVID-19 mortality rate among restaurant workers. Since the beginning of the pandemic in 2020, work conditions have placed enormous strain on this workforce.
