Burger King marquee goes viral with an "We All Quit" message

This brings a whole meaning to, "Take this job and shove it."

The sign outside of a Burger King in Lincoln, Nebraska read, "WE ALL QUIT," and "SORRY FOR THE INCONVIENCE."
As of today, the letters were taken down.

Who were the culprits?
Two former employees. They were NOT "Having it their way."

Those two former employees blamed the management for the reason why people quit.
"They wanted to put up a sign to say, you know, 'Sorry there's really not going to be anyone here,'" former general manager Rachael Flores said. "Just kind of a laugh to upper management. That got put up before we opened, and I didn't think anybody was going to notice it, because we did just one sign. And then it went pretty crazy on Facebook. I got a call from my upper management and they told me I needed to take it down."

Flores had put in her two-week notice, and then eight of her coworkers followed. She served as a general manager since January.

Flores said that "they have gone through so many district managers since [she's] been GM."
She also said that the Burger King has employees working in the kitchen with no air conditioning for weeks! The kitchen surpassed 90 degrees at one point!
Flores even ended up in the hospital for dehydration.
And, what was her boss's reaction? Her boss said she was a "baby" about the whole thing.

"I just stayed to help Rachel out," former employee Kylee Johnson said. "She's my best friend. She's been with me through a lot. I just want to help her as much as I can. I knew what was going on staffing wise. We were just waiting for more people to come then and we got nobody."

The two said the kitchen was understaffed and would ofter have three to four people working during lunch time.

The former employees said upper management was unaware the workers were going to put the sign up! Well, duh. You don't reveal your master plan!
The staff had been joking about putting the message the day before, and then followed through the next day.

And, you guessed it. Upper management fired Flores.

The Burger King is still opened but still facing turmoil.
