Nine employees of a Burger King in Lincoln turned in their two-week notices and told the world as a result of a viral Facebook post.
The sign outside the restaurant said, ”We all quit. Sorry for the inconvenience.”
The manager, Rachael Flores, told KLKN-TV the sign was put up, then taken down Saturday morning after she was told by upper management to remove it.
Flores told KLKN-TV that employees had been working in the kitchen that hit 90 degrees and was without air conditioning for weeks. She said she ended up in the hospital being treated for dehydration and was told by her boss that she was being a “baby.”
Flores told the TV station that she was surprised that anybody even noticed the sign. She said the store is understaffed.
“They have gone through so many district managers since I’ve been GM,” she said. “No one has come to the store to help me out. They’re so in and out.”
A former patrol evidence technician and the owner of a Lincoln restaurant were arrested in the theft of more than $1.2 million worth of narcotics, including $329,800 worth of cocaine, according to the State Patrol.
An arrest warrant has been issued for James Timmerman for making terroristic threats, use of a weapon to commit a felony, third-degree domestic assault, assault by strangulation, robbery and false imprisonment.
The school district made quarantining optional for students and staff exposed to a person who tested positive for COVID-19. The nurse said she was asked to ignore when students and staff didn’t wear masks on buses, a federal law.
