“WE ALL QUIT” Burger King sign goes viral after all employees walk away
Nebraska Burger King employees wrote a “WE ALL QUIT” sign before walking away.
The staff at a Lincoln, Nebraska Burger King restaurant shocked everyone as they all walked away from their workplace. But, as Fox News reports, they didn’t leave before putting a large sign reading:
“We all quit. Sorry for the inconvenience.”
The fast-food diner’s employees claimed they have been working in a kitchen with no air conditioning for weeks with the room temperature reaching more than 90°F.
"WE ALL QUIT."

What is more, one of the staff members, former general manager Rachael Flores, was reportedly hospitalized for dehydration. Speaking to KLKN Channel 8, she commented:
“I didn’t think anybody was going to notice it [the sign], because we did just one sign, and then it went pretty crazy on Facebook. I got a call from my upper management and they told me I needed to take it down.”
The former manager had reportedly been working at Burger King since January. She placed her two-week notice earlier this month, claiming she had been forced to work about 60 hours per week.
Following her notice, eight other workers at the restaurant voiced complaints of being understaffed. After Flores left, the Burger King is still operating but remains in need of employees.
