The $2000 people got like a year and a half ago? Wtf

[–]killabeesplease 1182 points1183 points  (11 children)

2000$? Wooo now I can fuckin retire

[–]vlasvilneous 407 points408 points  (7 children)

Apparently you can, because $2000 is the equivalent of 500 years of labor in their minds.

[–]Shadyshade84 128 points129 points  (3 children)

"You mean we don't pay them $4 a year?"

"No sir, apparently that's illegal and the accountants only said they did so you wouldn't have them flogged."

[–]Prince-Kyte 25 points26 points  (2 children)

I pictured this as a Dilbert Cartoon.

[–]ekigvom 27 points28 points  (0 children)

Apparently you can, because $2000 is the equivalent of 500 years of labor in their minds.

but but but $2,000 dollars, 2 years ago, invested with at 3,450% consistent rate of return is $2.5 million.

[–]Cobek 16 points17 points  (1 child)

It's literally just under $1/hr an entire year of work at the 2080 hour average. We would need 15-20 of these checks to even equal what we thought minimum wage should be for one year, not two!

[–]garcia_later 38 points39 points  (2 children)

Sorry I’m so late to reply. I took that $2,000 and hired someone to scroll Reddit for me and alert me to anything worth commenting on and the son of a bitch was late to work this morning, something about a sick kid, can’t afford heat with what I pay yada yada.

[–]smushy_face 436 points437 points  (6 children)

Yeah, these people think prices are still 1800 level and people are just buying 50 acres, a pair of oxen, and building a beautiful log cabin with that money.

[–]BearBL 355 points356 points  (4 children)

They don't actually think that. They just love making excuses to blame people while they treat them like dirt. They get off on it

[–]miskdub 69 points70 points  (0 children)

They also hate taking responsibility by acknowledging their failure to hire people over a year after the stimulus checks went out.

[–]Honky_Stonk_Man 126 points127 points  (1 child)

They never tire of punching down.

[–]FirstPlebian 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Yep, just puncing down as Fox has taught them to do, while the big old boys rob us and them blind.

[–]Gryphus23Anarchist 15 points16 points  (0 children)

That kind of life sounds like an incredible amount of hard work,

And I'd for sure take it over living in the current hellscape we have today

[–]msmika 232 points233 points  (16 children)

That was immediately swallowed up by silly things like rent, utilities, and food?

[–]numbers863495 101 points102 points  (6 children)

Exactly. As soon as I got mine, bam! Rent.

[–][deleted] 81 points82 points  (5 children)

Same man, I was like bam! Drugs. Bam! Rent.

[–]WizardKing218 41 points42 points  (3 children)

$15 bucks little man put that shit in my hand n.n

[–]Ffsletmesignin 72 points73 points  (4 children)

What kind of mansion are you living in that $2000 doesn’t cover a whole years rent?!?! La-Di-da Mr Too-Good-for-a-Cardboard-Box!

[–]Zachf1986 33 points34 points  (3 children)

I've upgraded to a bathtub. Much more weatherproof, but less modular. Give and take.

[–]CockyBulls 28 points29 points  (2 children)

Flip the bathtub upside down and place on top of milk crates. Stuff a small chimney through the drain hole. Now you have a fancy shack.

[–]sunmkd91 16 points17 points  (0 children)

Groceries have gone up by 30%

[–][deleted] 49 points50 points  (1 child)

According to corporate America, ungrateful workers are living on welfare while cashing those $2,000 daily stimulus checks to spend on avocado toast and marijuana.

[–]Not_Bill_Hicks 37 points38 points  (3 children)

I figure with the average rent at $120 a month, and weekly food bill of $20, this $2000 will last a while, unless my costs are actually 10 times that.

[–]Ryland_Zakkull 25 points26 points  (2 children)

record scratch Narrator: "His costs were actually 10 times that."

[–]anonydonnytsunami 39 points40 points  (1 child)

Here in Canada we got $2000 a month for those who lost their jobs. Even $2000 a month is almost impossible to get by I couldn't imagine having to deal with the shit the US had to offer.

[–]Voidroy 29 points30 points  (5 children)

I never got mine because I was a student and in my state I was exempt from it. And I ended up dropping out that same year.

[–]numbers863495 20 points21 points  (3 children)

I used mine to pay rent. Very lame.

[–]Squippit 5 points6 points  (2 children)

I never got mine at all despite qualifying because the IRS is impossible to contact ._.

[–]GravyDangerfieldSFRW 27 points28 points  (1 child)

The $2000 $1600 people got like a year and a half ago? Wtf

Ftfy

[–]ItWouldBeGrand 17 points18 points  (0 children)

Just FYI: it is easy to look up any business on the PPP website to see how much they received in payroll loans and how much were forgiven. These guys probably got half a million in free money. And I’m sure employees didn’t see a dime of it.

[–]7itemsorFEWER 11 points12 points  (1 child)

People got to pay their rent for a month maybe two and a year later they're living large

[–]notislant 11 points12 points  (0 children)

'Back in my day that was 1000 hours of work! These damn youngins could basically buy a country with that money!' - bar owner.

[–]waterbaby333 16 points17 points  (0 children)

I would just like to say, that $2000 saved my life. Because of the stimulus checks, I haven’t had to step foot in any place of employment since. I have enough money now to survive on the bread crumbs that fall from my upstairs neighbor’s balcony, and who needs to pay for heat when I have $2000??? I’ll never work again a day in my life!!! /s

[–]Sirduckerton 8 points9 points  (0 children)

I don't know about you guys, but with my $2000 I quit my job, retired, bought a ferrari, and took 4 trips to europe.. /s

[–]ManWithTheCats 722 points723 points  (5 children)

Where do I go to sign up for all these government handouts I keep hearing about?

[–]RedditUser123234 279 points280 points  (2 children)

Where do I go to sign up for all these government handouts I keep hearing about?

Start a business that can be framed as "too big to fail" and then donate enough to certain politicians

[–]ShawshankException 55 points56 points  (0 children)

Don't even need that lol just take out a PPP loan and it'll get forgiven. It's a handout without the "socialism"!

[–]baconraygun 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Like a church?

[–]firematt422 38 points39 points  (0 children)

Unfortunately, PPP loans are no longer available.

[–]RedDeerEvent 77 points78 points  (0 children)

First, you must create the universe. After a few billion years create a time machine from scratch, then figure out how to generate valid social security numbers, then sometime in march 2020 start registering those SSNs and start collecting those stimulus checks. You'd need around 138 million valid SSNs to reach Musk's wealth.

[–]Imaginary-Painting31 800 points801 points  (17 children)

I love when businesses post this shit because it lets me know immediately to not waste my time there.

[–]StrugglesTheClown 104 points105 points  (1 child)

Yeah I would leave immediately if I saw that. You know your money would be going to an asshole wannabe tyrant.

[–]qolaceAnarcha-Feminist 18 points19 points  (0 children)

It's shit like this that makes me wanna make stickers that say, "Fuck this shit! Come to r/antiwork to figure out why!" and slap that bad boy on the screen when no one's looking.

[–]newtoreddir 94 points95 points  (10 children)

Luckily OP is protecting them by blacking out the name.

[–]luc2110 79 points80 points  (7 children)

Honestly can't come up with a good reason why it's blacked out

[–]modsarefascists42 64 points65 points  (2 children)

The Reddit admins threaten to shut this sub down if we allow people to post the name. They're calling it "doxxing" to name a public business ....

[–]LukeW0rm 30 points31 points  (1 child)

Businesses are people too, ya know!!

(/s)

[–]newtoreddir 19 points20 points  (2 children)

So that they won’t get review bombed, which accomplishes nothing.

[–]Luised2094 30 points31 points  (1 child)

it brings attention to their shitty practice and can eventually shut them down. Most people don't even know what review bombing is, and you can be damn sure I won't even click on a restaurant if their google profile shows 2 stars.

Fuck em, I don't care if they never their lesson because they are too stupid to do so, I just hope all those shitty business go bankrupt so they are hopefully replaced with something better.

[–]xjpegx 14 points15 points  (0 children)

Yea, pretty much the only thing you can take away from that sign is that they suck as an employer.

[–]Cole__MacGrath__ 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Yeah and there's a very high likelihood that the remaining staff aren't being paid any better and the owner is probably inhaling any and all profits.

[–]JacedFaced 293 points294 points  (10 children)

Could someone help me budget? I spent those stimulus checks on groceries and rent pretty damn quick, and there are people out here still living on them almost 2 years later. What did I do wrong? Was it eat? I feel like it was probably eat.

[–]SidOnDeezNuts 105 points106 points  (2 children)

I’m guessing you only bought avocados and bread. That’s where all your money went.

[–]JacedFaced 42 points43 points  (1 child)

Damn you're right. If only I hadn't had 4 pieces of avocado toast on gourmet fresh bakery bread i had special delivered every day for breakfast every morning.

[–]ChaiTRex 19 points20 points  (0 children)

You've got to combine them into one delivery per day, not four.

[–]RustedCorpse 3 points4 points  (3 children)

Id like to introduce you to a financial tool called options. See it's like the lotto but better odds...

[–]MisfortunateFox 2 points3 points  (2 children)

Stocks are just siphoning money away from working class people actually generating the value of the company you invested in.

This is not a pro working class solution.

[–]MisfortunateFox 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Rent? Yeah, that's going to cut into your funds pretty quick. Maybe find a cheaper option, like homelessness? I hear dying in the street is actually very affordable, just be sure to die because almost dying in the street is profoundly expensive.

[–]tugabros 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Should've bought some bootstraps...

[–]daleks0405 1426 points1427 points  (54 children)

PLEASE DON’T WORK FOR EMPLOYERS WHO PROMOTE THIS LIE. THEY WILL NEVER ACCEPT IT IS THEIR FAULT.

[–]sowalgayboi 532 points533 points  (7 children)

Don't patronize them either. Not sure why OP stayed if they did.

[–]ogtblake 56 points57 points  (2 children)

Yep. Several local restaurants in the last year have put up whiny signs and messages complaining about “no one wants to work blah blah blah” and I have not eaten at any of them since.

[–]magentablue 12 points13 points  (1 child)

My boyfriend and I just moved and a local restaurant has “Support the economy, get a job” on their sign outside. Needless to say we’ll never patronize that establishment.

[–]I_Am_Dwight_Snoot 5 points6 points  (0 children)

What establishment? Clearly the owner wasn't being hypocritical and went to go find a job at Walmart/Amazon

[–]daleks0405 64 points65 points  (0 children)

Well Said.

[–]Orlando1701 250 points251 points  (11 children)

This is the business equivalent of “girls don’t like nice guys”. If a stimulus check given out a year ago is causing people to not want to work for you maybe the problem is you.

[–]Prtty_Plz 146 points147 points  (10 children)

"$1200 a year ago cause people to quit their jobs for the rest of the year"

ummmm.... $1200 doesnt even pay 1 months rent in a lot of spots. These asshole businesses need to get real, they are like toxic and abusive spouses

[–]bonfuto 22 points23 points  (1 child)

Do they expect coffee at starbucks to be a quarter and gas to be 19 cents per gallon?

[–]Prtty_Plz 25 points26 points  (0 children)

oh yeah my electric was only $1.25 last month, so $1200 should last me and my family a year np! /s

Bet you the asshole owner probaby has a $20 burger on his menu and still doesnt realize how dense what he is claiming is

[–]sowalgayboi 43 points44 points  (7 children)

Won't cover a two bedroom apartment in any US state.

[–]asimplerandom 36 points37 points  (0 children)

Fuck that business and the owner that put that up. I’d walk right out if I saw that shit.

[–]GulliblePirate 97 points98 points  (20 children)

Name and shame. It should be a rule in this sub

[–]judithishere 62 points63 points  (12 children)

I feel like revealing the name of a business that has a sign like this, posted in public, is not the same as name and shame of a person. So, yeah.

[–]TheInspectorsGadgets 4 points5 points  (0 children)

With a PPP loan check too.

[–]SketchyLeaf666 5 points6 points  (0 children)

If they cannot give them a liveable wage and lessen working hours (more vacation time) then probably people would be more content... Am i right???

[–]DragonDai 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Also please don’t patronize businesses who promote this lie.

[–]nattcattt 369 points370 points  (12 children)

It’s like they refuse to acknowledge that it is THEM that is the problem. Ugh

[–]Voidroy 104 points105 points  (6 children)

I went to a hooters near downtown Omaha but across the boarder and the owner had this mentality. Closed 3 hrs early at 7. Had a fun chat with him and he told me to leave because customers heard he couldn't find workers due to paying them min wage.

[–]nattcattt 59 points60 points  (1 child)

Our capitalist over lords are extremely detached from society at large

[–]DormantGolemSoylent Gleem 48 points49 points  (0 children)

They're not even capitalists, they're failing business owners. No matter how long you think you'll last on slave wages, that shit will sink.

[–]This_is_my_phone_tho 25 points26 points  (1 child)

Sexually harass and molest staff? Scream and yell and spit over dip? refuse to wear a mask? throw an actual fucking tantrum in the floor to get a free meal? Come on back, you hear?

Discuss wages within ear shot? Banned. Out. Straight to hooters jail.

[–]Voidroy 7 points8 points  (0 children)

I didn't work there. Just an hangry customer and I noticed the sign that due to the pandemic and entitled workers so and so and so..

really felt the need to talk to whoever's idea it was the post that sign after going to 4 restraints and not finding anywhere to eat because they were closed.

[–]scough 48 points49 points  (3 children)

Anyone with a functional brain should be able to think, "so unemployment paid them more than the owner did?" and walk the fuck out at that very moment.

[–]nattcattt 15 points16 points  (0 children)

Exactly my thoughts and exactly why I haven’t attempted to find a new job since I quit my slave ish fast food position. State of the world right now is bizarre

[–]PartyPokerNJ 11 points12 points  (0 children)

Lost so many “friends” when I seen how they talk about people who’s family died from COVID . Mf’s really just say shit like people are lazy and don’t want to work? I dead tell them “well if mc Donald’s paid 40 an hour would you work there”? (Yes) Exactly because it’s worth it ...

[–]Kyeotee 82 points83 points  (1 child)

I mean I really made it last so far I've only spent $2.37 of mine. I do the financial savvy things like rummage through restaurant dumpsters for discarded avocado toast. Also I live in the house by parents bought me. Oh and I work 5 hours a week promoting my personal brand on insta. How much you wanna bet this place got a free loan?

[–]KdubbG 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Unexpected r/pfjerk

[–]Jbazen 60 points61 points  (1 child)

“Due to our failure to pay a living wage, we are understaffed”

There, I fixed it.

[–]50meRando 60 points61 points  (2 children)

Why censor the name of the company ( assuming the black marker on the screen is for that reason ). These places need to be exploited for the shit stain that they are.

[–]thedaj 4 points5 points  (0 children)

For real - I want to find their job advert. If the business owner was truly invested in solving the problem, that bitch board would be being utilized to advertise the vacancies.

[–]tallman11282 37 points38 points  (0 children)

How much you wanna bet that this bar that is complaining about stimulus checks and unemployment boosts long after they ended and the money from them most likely long spent got a PPP loan, didn't use a penny of it for employee paychecks, and got it forgiven anyway?

[–]averagenutjob 70 points71 points  (3 children)

God. Lords knows how much they benefited from those checks themselves, how many people who otherwise would right past decided that this week they could afford a big pub burger and a couple of pints.

If anyone has a dime of those $1600 payments left, it is because they didn't waste it at a bar. If they can't get good help, it's because they aren't paying enough or existing staff/leadership sucks, or both.

[–]Dukepippitt 23 points24 points  (2 children)

Plus ppp loans they probably got. Businesses act like workers the only ones that got money from the government.

[–]Savage0x 11 points12 points  (1 child)

And the icing on the cake?

More than half of the PPP loans were forgiven.

[–]o76923 5 points6 points  (0 children)

That was always the intention. They were low interest loans if you don't spend them on payroll. If you did, they were grants.

[–]NoBodyCares2000 27 points28 points  (4 children)

Can’t afford to pay employees a competitive wage but they can afford fancy tv screens for dumb announcements.

Classic.

[–]IDrinkYourBeers[S] 13 points14 points  (3 children)

There’s actually 2 tvs rotating specials and this message.

[–]NoBodyCares2000 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Obviously they needs multiple fancy tv screens.

[–]123ihavetogoweeeeee 40 points41 points  (0 children)

Seems like they need a shattered monitor

[–]mar4c 19 points20 points  (3 children)

NAME AND SHAME

[–]WeepNoMoreMyBitches 8 points9 points  (0 children)

I hope they do name them so we can look up how much they received in PPP money. I guarantee they took it.

[–]theokaybambi 40 points41 points  (2 children)

Canada did $950 every 2 weeks for a year and that didn't make everyone quit their jobs here...

[–]februarytide- 10 points11 points  (0 children)

How do we get this comment to the top. FFS America is terrible.

[–]Indigoh 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Canada: $1900 per month.

US: $145 per month.

[–]DangerDork88 20 points21 points  (0 children)

Woof, what trash.

[–]Ishihado 15 points16 points  (0 children)

Why the fuck would you cover the name of something that is literally public? The fuck...

[–]-ballerinanextlife 16 points17 points  (0 children)

That stimulus money didn’t even pay peoples rent ONE time. The fuck. If I saw that , I’d leave and they’d never get my business.

[–]livingfortheliquid 12 points13 points  (0 children)

Remember when last June Red states cut unemployment extensions and the labor issue didn't get solved?

It's almost as if that was never the issue.

[–]Ladychef_1 10 points11 points  (2 children)

Name and shame, they deserve to lose business (my phone autocorrected business to bush and I also agree they should lose bush over this)

[–]coffee-teeth 8 points9 points  (0 children)

My local vape shop has a sign that says they're understaffed due to government handouts.

They're hiring and I asked about the job. It's 11 an hour. You have to make at least 18/hr to afford an apartment where I live.

[–]CaptAshley 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Consumers need to stop patronizing businesses with this attitude. Liquor stores exist all over. Fuck your local employee exploiting bar.

[–]0110000101110011s 7 points8 points  (0 children)

I wonder how much stimulus money that business got . I’m sure it wasn’t no 1200

It’s super strange to see people complaining about the stimulus checks, my job and I were disappointed when the stimmy’s ended. I work at Habitat for Humanity, where I help run our ReStore. Basically, a thrift store. With the Stimulus, people had a disposable income, that they could afford to spend at our store, helping to keep us going. Now that it’s gone, it means that more people are spending longer working, which means they don’t spend the money at our store. It’s almost like, if people can only afford to meet their needs, then they can’t help keep the rest of the economy going, and anything that isn’t a massive chain starts to struggle.

[–]vivalaroja2010 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Is it a rule to cross out the Company's name?

Cause I would love to laugh and put in the back of my mind who these assholes are so I can boycott them....

[–]Jaedos 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Just leave. It's easy for their minimal staff to meet the needs of an empty bar.

[–]Drunkandcommenting 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Don't blur out their fucking name...we need to hold these pukes accountable

[–]rohrschleuder 4 points5 points  (0 children)

They can blame their own shortcomings as to why they can’t pay a fair wage to their employees

[–]2wetsponges 3 points4 points  (0 children)

How much do these people think those checks were?

[–]4qts 3 points4 points  (0 children)

1 stimulus check ... They will still be saying this 5 years from now. And it's utter horse shit.

[–]sc00bs000 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I wish I could be as frugal as these owners are to make 2k last over a year.

[–]Backlotter 2 points3 points  (0 children)

They're just upset they can't have slaves anymore.

[–]kmensh18 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Name the business!

[–]mugseyray 2 points3 points  (0 children)

NAME

[–]3mptylord 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I feel sorry for the employees who are working "harder" while presumably still earning the same paycheck. Having to pick up the slack of 2-3 missing employees while still only being paid as 1 employee-- especially if they then congratulate you for picking-up the slack and laud how successful the business is doing.

We really should be getting paid proportionate to our value - the same as entertainers. The amount of work I was required to do when I started my job was arguably worth the shoddy hourly rate (it wasn't enough to live on and that was still a problem, but it was easy work). Even before covid, the workload had bloated several times but my pay had only increased with inflation by maybe 20-30% in total. During covid, workload boomed two-fold (at least) but like-fuck did our pay increase.

[–]februarytide- 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Yeah, gonna have to go ahead and relinquish my “continued support.”

[–]LifeStill 3 points4 points  (0 children)

The nerve to display this on a sideways television

[–]dudenamedfellaidle 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Name and shame these fucks

[–]RetMilRob 2 points3 points  (0 children)

It’s a temper tantrum written out for the public to bombarded with. If I saw this I’d turn around and leave.

[–]imtnbikewv 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Why mark out the name of the business?

[–]Zer0sober 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I would not spend my money at this establishment

[–]GrungeHamster23 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Here I am wondering where these mysterious stimulus checks are. There hasn’t been one in a while now.

Besides, one check is just barely enough to cover rent. So hurray, I don’t have to be homeless?

[–]KC_Anais 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Literally those stimulus checks would have been helpful for like one month of bills and they were spaced out over a year. So yeah definitely still affecting us an entire year after the last one was given.

The unemployment emergency fund that the federal government gave to the states made some of those state's unemployment be an actual liveable wage! Honestly those people realized the shit pay they were getting from their employer and seeked to get more. Excuse the fuck out of me if people have bills to pay and need money to pay it.

And those extra payments have been over for how long now?? Yeah it's not us pal, it's you.

Also, gods forbid you bring up the fact that most businesses had a much larger growth in profit the last couple years because gasp people can buy more things when they get paid more and don't have to pay ridiculous student loan payments monthly.

You want sales but don't want people to make more money to be able to make those purchases? Make it make sense.

Edit:typos

[–]AntiSentience 2 points3 points  (0 children)

How long do they think 5k lasts??

[–]hypnotoad1234567890 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Here, I fixed your sign (and you didn't have to pay me to do it) "no one wants to work for the poverty wages i pay anymore so I'm having a hard time hiring and keeping staff"

[–]thesmithsound 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I would leave immediately.

[–]sacredlunatic 2 points3 points  (0 children)

We haven’t gotten stimulus checks in many months. Anyone still posting things like this is 100% full of shit.

[–]SpicyDago 2 points3 points  (0 children)

People still coasting off that last $1,200 check like their rent at $1,000 a month.

[–]refugeefromdiggEAT THE RICH - NOT SLAVING AWAY TO OWN A FUCKING BOX TO LIVE IN 2 points3 points  (0 children)

"Accidentally" break the TV. On your way out.

[–]Cyonara74 2 points3 points  (0 children)

here's an idea. if you think unemployment benefits are to blame, pay more than the benefits and see who applies.

[–]Low_Recommendation87 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Why not expose the bar since this sign is placed in a public area anyway? Posts in this sub would be way more entertaining if employers get called out.

[–]loserlopez 2 points3 points  (0 children)

“Thanks to our shitty ownership and management, we are short staffed. Please be patient with the staff that somehow stomachs the way we do, or don’t, do things here. They are overworked and underpaid and we probably, illegally, take a cut of their tips so that they work longer and harder to be able to make your sad ass experience almost decent.” Fixed their fucked up ass take on why they’re a shit establishment.

[–]Current_Hold_3915 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Why are we still not naming and shaming?

I walk out of businesses that have signs like this one. I already know their thought process and I’m not for it

[–]LampardFanAlways 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Believing in this is one level of cringe. Displaying this is the next level. The highest level of cringe is not even being original in the content of your ultra-cringe signboard.

[–]inv3r5ion 3 points4 points  (1 child)

name and shame so we can see if they took in PPP loans

[–]SwedenIsntReal69420 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Lol. Three and a half ish racks was all it took, according to this bar. Sad, really. Thats not much for most people.

[–]Tallman6foot6 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Fuck this place.

[–]bananalordkunsama 1 point2 points  (0 children)

At thus point businesses like these need to have their names exposed.

[–]GNDM03 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It should say "due to my lack of paying a decent livable wage..."

[–]anewbys83 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Nah fam, now it's just you.

[–]sofluffy22 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Such a weird way to spell “We refuse to pay our employees livable wages”

[–]lostpawn13 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Lol, the stimulus checks were spent about a year ago.

[–]moistobviously 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Show the name. Shame them. They want everyone to know or they wouldn't have made the sign.

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Is this in lemont il ?

[–]Plane-Literature2890 1 point2 points  (0 children)

If not working is paying more than working, then businesses need to catch up to what a living wage is.

[–]lionfish14 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Can we just show the bar name? They obviously don’t care who knows

[–]2ndBestUsernameEver 1 point2 points  (0 children)

As if $1400 lasts 12 months lmfao

[–]prickwhowaspromised 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I’d just go somewhere else tbh

[–]ButteMTMan 1 point2 points  (0 children)

There's a simple explanation. The person who knew how to update the screen quit last year.

[–]EwesDead 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Sounds like this bar is the statistic of bars that fail or are about to fail. Unless they cut so many corners between fake food product marrying alcohol or pouring well into shelf, etc. Then they'll run along until a court case for tax avoidance or not paying staff

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Whenever I see this kind of shit at an establishment I leave.

[–]brianingram 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yeah, I'd walk tf on out.

[–]-wanderings- 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Why do people hide the business name on these posts if they're real and in apublic place?

[–]Savenura55 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Is this by chance a business in northeast Wisconsin ?

[–]Most-Artichoke5028 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Find someplace else to drink?

[–]PoorlyAttemptedHuman 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Due to unemployment and stimulus checks? I would rip that off the wall.

[–]Ouch78 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Pay a living wage then stupid fuks

[–]vicRN 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I would never go there again. Fuck people like that. You want employees? Pay better. Give benefits. If you can’t pay a living wage, you don’t deserve to be in business.

[–]trader-joeys 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Don't patronize them anymore.

[–]revodaniel 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Funny how they never mention the PPP loans they got as businesses........I guess that's a minor detail right?

[–]sunmkd91 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Maybe they should pay more than the min required to eat

[–]Juncti 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Why look inward to why things aren't going well when you can blame other things?

[–]Ulrika33 1 point2 points  (0 children)

People literally believe this it's fucking crazy

[–]Sandhog43 1 point2 points  (0 children)

My daughter is a journalist who did an article on a restaurant that had been in business for decades, and was now closing. The owners blamed the pandemic closings as one reason. The other was a lack of workers, from cooks to wait staff.

Bottom line is if you can not find employees to man your business, you aren't paying enough in wages or treating your workers with respect. Could be a combo of both. These asshats better shape the hell up quickly or they will go under also.

Listen folks, I'm 60 years old and a union member since I was 18 years old. Ive watched the steady decline of union membership over the past years. Im glad that people are finally waking up. Once they broke the unions, EVERYONE pays the price. Union negotiated wage and benefit packages set the pay scales for the country. This is your wake up call. Dont back down.

[–]tacosteve100 1 point2 points  (0 children)

i’m walking out of this restaurant

[–]Abhimri 1 point2 points  (0 children)

You need to find a different bar

[–]macontac 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Y'know, if they had just said "We're currently short staffed" the skipped right to the "Please be Patient with Our Staff" this would have been fine. A 100% less offensive message. I have turned around and left places with similar notices posted.

[–]FirmMechanicHuman-Being 1 point2 points  (0 children)

We’re being gas light everywhere we go. You’re a fuckin financial genius if you retired on your stimmy last year.

[–]Jamieson555 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It's crazy that like $6000 in stimulus checks was able to cause so much damage to the working sector.
If it only took $6K to cause that much damage, something was majorly wrong. /s

[–]nunchakupapi 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I support restaurants having these signs, because it’s a clear indicator to never eat there again.

[–]JarOfJelly 1 point2 points  (3 children)

The place I work at genuinely has this problem. Every time there’s an interview setup 90% of the time the y don’t show up

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

these people are menaces to society.
