All year, we've heard about stories where service employees and particularly fast food employees quit en masse from their stores. Often, they cited extreme working conditions with little in terms of wages and benefits to show for them.
The more this happens, the more obvious it is that workers are getting fed up. Although the issues they point to have existed for years, they've become so much harder to ignore in the wake of spiking orders that have come with the emergence of the COVID-19 pandemic.
And as we've seen in more recent examples of what some are calling The Great Resignation, these problems have only been compacted for the workers who have stayed around as they're facing interminable work days and seemingly endless orders.
And as we're about to see, the worsening environments that come from this downward spiral are only inspiring more employees to quit.
