Links where out of staters can support?
I work at a “Christian” based thrift store I’ll call Sally Army.
Don’t believe their bullshit either
Fuck yeah, you go BK workers!
Is that burger king franchise or corporate owned?
Good for them. You shouldn’t have to deal with unsafe working conditions for terrible pay.
Fuck yeah, Comrades! Demand the respect you deserve! ✊🏽✊🏻✊🏿✊🏼✊🏾
Going to be avoiding Kurger Bing until they unionize
If a building in Sacramento is hotter than outside, it’s probably on fire.
In Canada somewhat recently (Ontario) they found a burger king where a dozen or more employees were forced to live in the basement on cots and pay a large portion their wages to the guy who petitioned the government to allow him to hire temporary foreign workers (TFW’s) which an employer can deport for any reason or no reason at all. Not living in the basement was definitely a deportable offense in this case. We are circling the drain at this point.
Local Sacramentan who would like to support the workers here, how can I best do this?
FUCK YEAH! Fuck fast food places. Unionize them all! they have my support!
That’s amazing!! I hope they get what they deserve.
Hell yes, definitely supporting this!
I wish I had done something more when something similar happened at my old job last summer… the building’s ac broke during a summer heat wave, so it was 90+ inside the store plus hotter by the ovens and equipment. Lasted 2 WEEKS before the area manager bothered to get it fixed, and did not give a flying fu– about all of the workers suffering from heat exhaustion.
The fact that anyone is making people work in situations like this is atrocious and deplorable.
My local Burger King is always a sweltering pressure cooker, no matter the season. Somebody has to tell corporate to rein these fucking good ol’ boy, bootstrappin’ franchisees in.
Nice glad to see fast food workers striking back.
Solidarity! What can we do to support you from out of state?
Hey I live around there!! Love to see locals taking action!! I will continue to not support BK while you strike for your rights!!
Best of luck, I have been on strike before and it can take time to get what you want. If I see you out there I will bring waters and snacks!!
KEEP IT UP!! THIS IS WHAT DEMOCRACY LOOKS LIKE!
Let’s go. Fuck the Monarchy!
And bring back the blue label ranch! That green label ranch is disgusting!
Ugh, this is the worst. I worked at a Taco Bell briefly and was stuck in a 120F+ kitchen one day when the AC went out. Came to work the next day and it was still out so I quit cause fuck that noise.
> A customer even pointed out the store was hotter inside than outside!
Very true; There’s a big ass oven (or two!) back there. The backline workers probably have it the worst.
Hell yeah bitch!!!! Y’all fuckin RULE!! SOLIDARITY FROM THE EAST COAST!!!!
Good fucking job guys! I’m in the area, what can I do to show support in a way management can see customers on your side?
Solidarity. This is so much better than randomly quitting. Real power.
US is so fucked up
I almost got robbed at this particular burger king.
I worked at the best buy next door. I was on my lunch break, went for a quick dirty burger. Sketchy looking fellow rushed me while handing over my burger payment. Luckily I pulled my cash away in time.
props to these stiking workers, that neighborhood is rough for sure
Fuck Burger King…
Worked at a shithole schlotzsky’s for a while when I was younger. During the summer, it was 90-100+ degrees where I lived and the air conditioner broke. I worked in front of their shitty little sandwich oven and was literally dripping sweat.
Customers complained constantly, I kept throwing out food because I sweat onto it. management told me to stop throwing the food away even if that happened.
I eventually confronted the owner about the AC being broken and how hot it was and asked her to fix it because customers were complaining (knew she didn’t give a shit about us) and all she told me was “yeah it’s so weird right? Crazy it’s so hot” and that was it. Not weird, the AC was broken. Stopped showing up pretty shortly after that and they kept begging me to come back in even after 8+ no call no shows
Worked at a jimmy johns in Kansas City during the summer. The temp unit in the store was literally over 98 or 99 degrees and they wouldn’t close the store down for us.
Labour rights matter. The greed of the rich needs to be fought for everyone’s benefit.
Welcome to Burger Prole, may I take your order?
What a small world, when I used to live in Cali, I lived in Sac, very near there.
Do they not have AC inside buildings in 2022 in California? That should be up there with access to water at this point
Good for you.. don’t forget to call your Mayor.. District supervisor.. and the governor… And OSHA .. make the calls every thing helps..but tell your coworkers to stand with you.. and the Community..Good luck
Probably fainted from the seed oil consumption tbqh fam
Really putting that one particular franchise in a real bind
I’m going to protest because I think Burger King is gross, in general.
Nobody should have to work under those conditions!!
Uh, a place that serves food shouldn’t be hot. That sounds very unsanitary.
Only in the USA you can disciplined someone for fainted. What a beautiful country
This is pathetic lmao.
Time to overthrow the King. Unionize!
Sorry I’m all for fair wages and working conditions but if you think working at Burger King is hot versus cooking at an actual restaurant over a flat top and grill for 10hrs every day during lunch and supper rush you just don’t have what it takes to be a cook.
7 years as a cook at Applebee’s.
Damn that’s gotta be hot as fuck to be hotter inside that outside in fucking Sacramento
Well you cannot complain that your food is cold fo shizzle…
