I am getting lots of these small flies in my restaurant light trap. What are they?

These are phorid flies, also called humpbacked flies or scuttle flies. They are filth-breeding flies that breed in moist organic matter like trash leakage or gunky drains. They are highly attracted to light, unlike fruit flies.
