Jane is the foodservice director at an on- campus dining service that feeds 800 students per meal for break-fast, lunch, and dinner. Jane arrives at her office at 7: 00 A. M. (half an hour before breakfast begins) only to find many problems. After listening to her phone messages, she finds that her breakfast cashier and one of her two breakfast dishroom employees have called in sick. The cashier position is essential, and the second dishroom person is necessary at 8: 15 A. M. when the students leave to go to their 8: 30 A. M. classes.
