Workers at three fast food restaurants shut down service and walked out en masse, according to a report from The Scioto Post. The reasons the entire staff quit were posted on the window of a Sonic fast food restaurant in Circleville, Ohio. The letter explains, “Due to terrible management the whole store has quit.” The new owners “don’t give a fuck about anyone but themselves.”
You can read the letter left by workers in Circleville, Ohio below:
The handwritten note continued, “The company has been sold to people that don’t give a f*uck about anyone but themselves. Sorry for the inconvenience, but our team refuses to work for a company that treats their employees like shit when they have put everything into this store. We have worked too hard for to long. We are all off to better things.” They signed the note with a very clear, “Fuck You.” They also posted a “Goodbye” and “Thank You, Next” sign, The Scioto Post reported.
The workers in Circleville, Grove City and Lancaster all walked out, completely shutting down business.
Similarly to the Circleville Sonic, workers at the Lancaster location typed out a letter addressed to their management team and posted it to the door for anyone to read. “We would just like to tell you cause you are the most trashiest company we have ever seen,” “To hide such information from your ‘team’ is unbelievable selfish and inconsiderate to the ‘people you care about.’ You guys pushed someone who has 11 years of Sonic under their belt for someone who has only been in the company for 6 months. She was loyal and would/did anything…asked of her. She gave 11 years of her blood, sweat and tears to this company only to get NOTHING but BACKSTABBED. So what makes you think that ANYONE else would want to work for someone as SLEEZY as you? Since 11 years of practice means s— to this company anymore, you lost another 9 years… and 8 years… and 5 years… and 2 years… and 2 years… and 1 year.”
