  1. Notes: OLS regression coefficients reported. In columns (1) and (2), the outcome the within-restaurant share of employees with part-time contracts. In columns (3) and (4), the outcome is the share of employees without a professional degree. In columns (5) and (6), the outcome is the share of workers that are less than 25 years of age. All specifications include restaurant fixed effects and time fixed effects. Columns (2), (4), and (6) include control variables “Daily meals served (Mon-Thu)” and “Daily meals served (Fri-Sun).” We exclude data for managers and members of their family from the estimation. Robust standard errors clustered at the restaurant level reported in parentheses. ,, and denote statistical significance at 10%, 5%, and 1%, respectively
