“A discount store in the US was forced to close after its fed up employees walked out.

The Family Dollar store in Lincoln, Nebraska, was left unmanned after staff united in protest at alleged low pay and long shifts.

The last two employees to left a note on the shop’s front door announcing their collective departure. It read: “We all quit! Sorry for the inconvenience.”

Its former assistant manager, Breanna Faeller, explained to local broadcaster KOLN that demands at the store caused high staff turnover due to new workers quitting immediately.

She said: “We got employees hired, they went through the onboarding process, they’d work for us for two days and they’d quit.

“They’d be done so it was just a never-ending cycle of training people and them quitting, and we wouldn’t have anybody anymore.”

“We couldn’t keep any cashiers hired because they only made $10 an hour and it definitely wasn’t worth the pay for everything we had to expect them to do,” Faeller said in a separate interview with Fox 5 News.

“They are only supposed to work up to 20 hours a week and they were working 35-40.”

After allegedly having to work 11-hour shifts, seven days a week, Faeller said she decided enough was enough and quit her job at the store…”

  1. Says more about the workers than the store. 40 hours a week is a normal work week in most jobs, seems like the workers wanted to visit more than they wanted a job. But, with the insane money being poured into paying people not to work, who can blame them for wanting it easy.

    • So what you’re saying is you cosign the behavior of working humans full-time without a day off or any healthcare benefits…what a gross thing to believe surely manifested from a perverted outlook on life.
