'No one wants to work': Beloved Winter Park BBQ restaurant closing due to labor shortage
"Despite paying more than any restaurant I am aware of, no one wants to work. We closed our Winter Park store with a whopping four employees. We were closed two whole days per week as well as two half days. It wasn’t by design, it was simply due to the fact we have no staff and can’t find any. Yes, d--- you pandemic and the political machine for making more appealing to not work than to be an active part of the workforce in our country. It’s pathetic,"

I can't blame people for wanting to get out of restaurant work. I personally know a handful of previous restaurant workers who used the downtime to pursue certificates or to finish degrees.
Would you work fast food, or something much more pleasant for a lot more money?!!

Fast food is not going anywhere due to the flood of illegal aliens. They don't need vaccines, healthcare, minimum wage and don't care about politics, jury duty. None of it. They are pretty good workers too. Way better than American kids and absolutely better than early release criminals and recovering drug addicts. They are the best low skill workers in the country.
