My Staff knows how important they are to the operation. They see me scrubbing pots, washing dishes and doing the floors. I have earned their respect through my work, and fair treatment of them. I suppose some people would like me to refer to "the rats" as "sanitation engineers."
I think the majority of people, while not agreeing with the term "dishrat," had more of an issue with your apparent lack of leadership and respect. Refer to them how you wish, just don't turn around and call him a bonehead because you or your sous chef didn't train the guy properly.
But hey, I guess cursing at your staff and calling them names is your idea of "fair treatment." You sound like a gem of a chef.
