Am I the only one that feels sad for restaurant staff?

I was reading an article in our local paper today about some of the various restaurants that will be offering Christmas dinner tomorrow. Of course the chefs talked about the advantages to eating out There was a lot of mention of how some places see the same families every year and it is a nice tradition for the families. All nice and good. But then they start talking about how their staff organizes their Christmas day around work, and I feel sad. I guess I'd be okay if I knew none of the staff celebrated Christmas, but otherwise I don't think I could ever eat happily if I knew the staff didn't get to celebrate like me. Now, keep in mind that I won't even get gas on Christmas day.

Am I alone in this?
