Everyone who’s worked at a rubbish fast food job has dreamed of making a dramatic exit.
But the entire workforce at a Sonic fast food drive-in lived that dream last week when they quit en masse and left a savage note to the store’s new owners.
The workers were protesting the drive-in's new management, alongside two other workforces who also quit at nearby Sonics, according to local news.
In the note, employees called out the company for treating “employees like they are s*** when they have put everything into this store”.
Another note from the Circleville store simply said “Thank you, next”.
Employees were facing a pay cut to a tipped wage of approximately $4 an hour, according to a source who spoke to The Scioto Post.
However, Sonic denied that claim in a statement to Fox News:
We recognise that changes like this can be difficult for employees to understand, and most current employees were offered the opportunity to continue working at the drive-in…
Employees working for the local drive-in can look forward to fun, fast-paced work on which they can build a career, if they choose.
No wage rates at any level decreased in this transition, although SONIC carhops often receive tips in addition to their wages.
Even without the alleged pay cut, people were backing the employees for quitting.
Let’s hope the ex-Sonic Circleville team can move on to brighter things.
