The "Great Resignation" rages on, as thousands upon thousands of Americans search for work that can actually support their needs financially while employers refuse to meet them there.
Many businesses across the country face closures as a result of staff shortages because people don't want to work at jobs that pay absolutely nothing for lots of time, stress, and labor.
Nationwide chain food stores have been hit especially hard as their predatory labor practices come to life.
For example, take Jimmy John's.
A sign on an undisclosed Jimmy John's store claimed a temporary closure due to labor shortages.
"This location is temporarily closed due to labor shortage. We are in the process of restaffing to return to normal operations and would like to apologize for the inconvenience. Thank you for your patience."
But a sign posted directly next to it told everybody exactly what was going on behind closed doors.
"There IS no labor shortage!!! The owners of this establishment treated their employees like dogs, never once helping us out — they don't even live in Florida."
"All employees (including management) were students and did a great job keeping the store running with no help from the owners. The past few months of crappy business have been the result of lazy, careless ownership."
Jimmy John's does not have a good history of treating its employees well, and were the defendants in a $1.8 million lawsuit regarding overtime compensation they failed to pay.
The shop also forces employees to sign a non-competition clause explicitly forbidding them from working for other sandwich shops even up to 2 years past the end of employment.
The Great Resignation has not seen its resolution yet.
There are currently two open jobs for every unemployed American.
