Did that with a restaurant.
They went under.

A small raise in pay might have kept him in business, too

Selling shoes was my last retail gig before I decided to become a chef.

I think I made the right choice.

Would have liked more info about why they quit other than an offhand comment that they didn't like the manager. I mean that might be the only reason, but if it is, they sure didn't give that reason much attention.

Reading comprehension for me at the moment is at a low, but from TFA it appears that the reason for quitting has not been stated.  Did I miss something?  Anyway, because it's en masse, I'd just like to know why, other than a shiatty manager.

Maybe because feet are "Not my fetish?"

I'm a nurse. During COVID, traveling nursing became huge cause of higher pay to the point where they had "travel" nurses that still lived in the same city but now got paid double. It got to the point where some floors had 70% travel nurses and a few that knew where things were or how things operated.  To think that a slight pay raise would have saved them hundreds of thousands of dollars if not millions considering how many lawsuits they could come down with. One local hospital realized they were gonna go broke and flat out gave all travel nurses a 2 week notice.
 
2022-08-12 6:14:29 PM  
And not saying it was shiatty for the nurses to leave.  Some of us nurses think that but if you can make more money doing the same job, why not?   They just weren't skilled and efficient to their new setting

They did say that it wasn't over money. Other than that it's light on the details. Every other time I've seen workers walk out en masse like that it's been because they're sick of dealing with toxic/abusive management. This looks to be the same. I expect this is the result of several different incidents and the former employees will have had a list of grievances.

Once upon a time, if you were unhappy with your job, you'd turn in your two-week notice and exit with perhaps a little bit of class.

Nowadays, it's not enough to quit and move on, assholes gotta destroy the whole gotdamn  business to boot.

All for nothing more than "likes" or "views", or some sense of self-importance that their parents and teachers weren't smart enough to beat out of them.

This joint is REALLY starting to suck.

Turns out it's a free country and you can work anywhere you want, at whatever level of competence you've achieved, at a price you negotiated with management when you hired in.

If you become dissatisfied, just find a new job, asshole.

Why would they? It's the kind of thing where if you already know what the reason is, it doesn't need explaining.

Workers don't quit jobs. They quit bosses.

Giving two weeks notice is, and was, ridiculous. A classic example of how we hold regular/poor people to a higher standard than millionaire and billionaires.

Rich people fire an entire division with no notice and that's just business.

Regular guy, whose company's legal department specifically created a document ensuring either side could leave without cause and without notice, is expected to give two weeks?!?! Nonsense.

I know people who have had a higher paying job lined up, but continued to work for lower pay. People living paycheck to paycheck, donating the difference in pay because of some ridiculous social expectation. I also know people who got told to leave after they gave notice and spent two weeks not earning any income.

If a company wants two weeks notice, it should be in the contract and go both ways. It's insane that companies continue to benefit from this setup.

I say go for it, just to watch their faces.  Or be a nice person, unlike me.

About a year I got a job on a team that was in the middle of what you're describing.  Their version of you trained me, then got another job.  I've trained the entire rest of the team.

When I told them that I'd gotten hired at another job, there was stunned silence from the whole group.  It was all I could do not to laugh at them because I'd been telling them for months that they had to learn to do without me.

For the moment, I spilt my time evenly between the two jobs.  (Same overall department in the company.) You know, 3/4 on the old and 3/4 on the new, and I'm salaried so I don't get overtime.

My SIL is a traveling nurse who has been making craptons of money working 4 hours from home.  To think if local hospitals paid her 15% more she would stay home instead of work away from home for 50% more is so infuriating as she would know her department and the systems and be invested in them instead of just thinking it is a 3-6 month gig.

I quit my job last month. (Commercial  Audio-visual) Got tired of being there.  My immediate supervisor was an asshole who constantly biatched at me, and I could do nothing right. If I didn't do *exactly* what he told me, I got biatched at.  "Go downstairs and start on one of the rooms down there." "You want me to take the trash with me on my way down?" "No! I want you to do what I told you.  I didn't say anything about the trash! If I had wanted you to take the trash down, I would have said so!" But if I did exactly what he told me, I got biatched at.  "Take this whole pile of boxes to the trash." So I do.  Later it's "Where is the box we put trash in?" "In the dumpster.  You said take the entire pile to the trash, so I did. " "No! Even if I tell you to throw out ask the boxes, you still keep one box for us to put trash in!"
One day we care bringing equipment into a conference room.  It's dark so I turn on the lights.  I got biatched at for that.  "What the hell are you doing? We are just dropping this stuff off, we aren't staying in here!  You don't need to turn on the lights!" Ffs man, it's an easy fix, nice can turn them right back off when we leave.
Everyone knows what an asshole he is. It's a running joke for them.  My first couple of days people were walking up and laughing and saying  "How's it like working for (asshole)?" The year before in was hired he went through like 4 or 5 techs that left because they couldn't stand working for him. But he's been working for the same director for 20 years, so he's not going anywhere.
Hell, they didn't even care or ask why I quit, though I'm sure they knew. But it got to the point where I rather be out of a job for a while than be there anymore.
So I said fark it and will probably take the rest of the year off.

/of course its helps being retired military. So my bills get paid, I just don't save any money.
