In all likelihood, you've heard some reports of a "labor shortage" in America as the extra strain the pandemic has brought on employees throughout the country ultimately has them deciding their jobs aren't worth it.
And while it isn't the only industry affected by this, some viral photos have made it clear that the effects of this trend are particularly pronounced in the fast food world. It's becoming less unusual to see signs on the drive-thru speaker revealing that entire locations have closed down because everyone at them quit their jobs.
But although some have argued that this is simply a sign that people don't want to work anymore, the fact that this industry in particular is so dramatically affected suggests there's something wrong with how fast food restaurants operate that make them so prone to mass walkouts right now.
So whether they like it or not, they're going to need to start paying a living wage if they want this trend to stop.
