Employees At McDonald’s Outlet Quit Halfway Through Their Shift

A recent video on a video-sharing platform went viral showing employees at a McDonald’s outlet standing outside the outlet in mid-shift, refusing to work. Social media has interpreted this as a sign of people quitting their jobs due to stress and unsatisfactory working conditions.

The ten-second long footage shows the staff of a California McDonald’s outlet walking out en masse in the middle of their shift. The video begins with a note, “Everyone quit, we are closed.”

The inside of the outlet is clearly empty, while uniformed staff are all gathered outside. When the video went viral via TikTok there was discussion on social media on the stress and poor work conditions that are causing employees to quit these days, especially after the pandemic-induced home isolation and mobility restrictions.

In response to the footage, someone wrote that the outlet was run by teenagers and wasn’t a comfortable environment to work in. The person also stated that the management did not respond or try to help them despite their complaints.

Even before the actual story behind the footage could be established, social media was busy discussing the stress in jobs post-pandemic and how employees were buckling under work pressure. There were also discussions around fair pay.

Recently, a Missouri outlet of McDonald’s was in the news when its manager was attacked by a man with a rake. The attacker was the father of a former employee who had been fired. The manager lost an eye in the attack.
