Brutal message left for boss as team of fast food workers all quit at same time – News LiveOn February 23, 2020 by Raul Dinwiddie
Customers at a fast food restaurant in Circleville, Ohio got a surprise when they went to grab a burger and fries This is because staff at a branch of the chain Sonic Drive-In had walked out on their jobs and left a rather explicit note in the window revealing why In the A4 message, the “Ex Sonic Crew” members said they “refused” to work for the company any longer, claiming it all came down to “terrible management” following the recent sale of the business According to 614Now, the company went under new management on February 25. But clearly staff weren’t impressed with their new bosses and weren’t afraid to tell them so, sticking the brutal letter up for all to see It reads: “Warning, due to terrible management the whole store has quit. “The company has been sold to people that don’t give a f*** about anyone but themselves ” They apologised for any inconvenience their actions caused before explaining why they had to leave “Our team refuses to work for a company that treats their employees like they are s*** when they have put everything into this store “We have worked too hard for too long. We are all off to better things.” They added: “So to the new owners, F*** YOU! Sincerely, Ex Sonic Crew ” And according to reports, these staff members weren’t the only ones who walked out, with teams at two other Sonic Drive-In locations believed to have followed suit Scioto Post reports workers at the Lancaster Sonic also left a note, but it was much tamer, saying: “goodbye” and “thank you, next” Sources close to the situation told the publication that part of the dispute was caused by pay cuts, which allegedly saw wages reduced from minimum wage to just $4 (£3) an hour It’s currently unclear when the stores will re-open, but another branch in the area has reportedly closed for good A Sonic spokesperson told WSYX: “Under new management, guests and the community can look forward to improved service and the famous food, beverages and treats for which Sonic is known “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 “Most current employees will have the opportunity to continue to work at the drive-in under the new ownership ” Sonic Communications manager Kyle Lankford added: “No wage rates at any level have been decreased in this transition”’ He added that workers “often” receive tips.
