A manager at Taco John’s in Iowa who was caught on camera making food while sweaty and barefoot last summer has been fired (and, because of health violations, denied unemployment benefits to boot), and the backlash that started with a Facebook post has apparently been so strong that the fast-food outpost has seen a 25 to 33 percent reduction in business in just two months, and even the owner is at risk of losing her franchise agreement. Folks: Never cook Nachos Navidad without shoes. [Des Moines Register via Consumerist]
