Burger King staff walked off the job in Lincoln, Neb., last week. The staff displayed a50 foot resignation letter on their last day.
“We all quit,” the sign outside the Nebraska restaurant read Monday. “Sorry for the inconvenience.” They recently gave notice that they were quitting due to poor conditions at the restaurant, including a broken air conditioner and understaffing issues. Store general manager Rachael Flores told KLKN that she quit over sweltering conditions in the kitchen, where temperatures reached the mid-30s C range. She says she was recently hospitalized for dehydration after working a shift in that heat, and that her boss called her a “baby” after the ordeal.
“We quit (be)cause upper management was a joke and had no care for me or my employees,” Flores wrote on Facebook. “I put in my 2 weeks and so did many other people.” Flores and eight others showed up early for their last day of work and changed the restaurant sign around 6 a.m.
Flores said the reason for the large sign was to get a “big laugh” at the expense of Burger King. Her boss called her a few hours later and told Flores to take the sign down. “I told him I couldn’t do that because we were short-staffed and lunch was starting,” Flores said.
