Is it permissible to work in a fast-food restaurant in a non-Muslim country where I serve chicken and beef as well as pork? Are my earnings and tips there lawful?

If you were not the one who is part of the purchase contract, then it is permissible to do such work. If this work is considered despicable to you, as you are serving food that is amongst the firm prohibitions in the Islamic faith, and this would give a negative impression of you in the eyes of people around you, then it is prohibited from this aspect, since it is prohibited for the believer to cause himself to be humiliated. Otherwise, the actual action of transferring prohibited food from the seller to the buyer is not prohibited and taking payment and tips for it is permissible also.
