Burger King Employees Receive Overwhelming Support On Social Media After Controversial Move
After sending a powerful message to upper management—via a sign—employees of a Lincoln, Neb. Burger King are getting overwhelming support on social media.
Nine staffers of the local Burger King decided to quit their jobs over difficult working conditions, according to KLKN-TV, and did so all in the same afternoon by posting their collective notice on the restaurant's large display sign. "WE ALL QUIT," it read. "SORRY FOR THE INCONVENIENCE."
Some had harsh criticism for the burger giant.
Flores said once the post about their sign caught began trending on Facebook, upper management asked her to take the sign down, then fired her.
"The work experience described at this location is not in line with our brand values," Burger King said in a statement to Eat This, Not That! "Our franchisee is looking into this situation to ensure this doesn't happen in the future."
