Most restaurants do not offer health insurance to their employees. Some waiters like me might have coverage, but among immigrant staffers, it's practically unheard of. So when people get sick, they don't get the medical attention they need, and whatever's sickening them gets worse or lasts longer than it has to.
And these are the people cooking and handling your food! You shouldn't be surprised. Let's face it: economics, politics, and lack of proper access to health care are creating a nation of potential Typhoid Marys that is going to weaken this country with disease from the inside out.
I hadn't ever thought about how health care for all actually makes a different for health care for me.
