The problem with gloves is, the people who use them think as long as their gloves are on they are clean. Yet, they empty trash, open doors, pick things up off the floor and never change their gloves. So in a sense, their hands are actually dirtier with gloves. To be cleaner than bare hands, anytime a person touches food, they would need to put clean gloves on. Which means they would have to change gloves a hundred times a workday..

This is pretty stupid. As a chef that routinely washes his hands I can tell you gloves really restrict your craft.

I mean it's great if your peeling raw shrimp. If you're cutting green onions into tiny little curls you're not doing it with gloves. You're likely to cut the gloves because your knife needs to be guided by your finger.
