Abstract/OtherAbstract:
BACKGROUND: Nationwide surveys identify food service workers as heavy alcohol users.
OBJECTIVES: This article analyzes dimensions and correlates of problem drinking among young adult food service workers.
METHODS: A telephone survey of national restaurant chain employees yielded 1,294 completed surveys.
RESULTS: Hazardous alcohol consumption patterns were seen in 80% of men and 64% of women. Multivariate analysis showed that different dimensions of problem drinking measured by the AUDIT were associated with workers' demographic characteristics, smoking behaviour, and job category.
CONCLUSIONS AND SCIENTIFIC SIGNIFICANCE: These findings offer evidence of extremely high rates of alcohol misuse among young adult restaurant workers.
