Workers are staying cool in the hot weather in Michiana

While many of us are trying to stay cool, we don't all have that option while on the job.

Thursday Newscenter Sixteen spent part of the day inside where we still found one of the hottest jobs.

At Grand Empire Buffet when it's one hundred degrees outside, it’s about 20 degrees hotter behind the Mongolian grill.

That's why the cooks rotate about every 30 minutes, stand by a fan and drink plenty of water.

“They don't stay there all the time, it would be too hot,” says James Zhang from Grand Empire.

While at Dorbin's meat market customers have been attracted to the cool AC instead of the premium meats. The air conditioner is set at 68 degrees.

The meat cutter even wears a flannel jacket in the morning while working in the freezer.

Some places adjust their hours when it gets this hot, that means employees come in extra early to avoid the heat if they are working outside.
