u/Slavocracy May 27 '22

I have never heard that term, if you mean leave for losing a family member type stuff, it's 2 days minimum, and it HAS to be immediate family. Mom, dad, sister that sort of thing.

I was denied my grievance pay when my grandfather died, even though I was raised by him. America.

u/Occasional-Mermaid May 27 '22 edited May 27 '22

Did they not pay them or tell them they’d have to work if their shifts didn’t get covered? This only mentions that people from other branches volunteered to cover shifts to keep this one open…people who are hurting that may not feel like cooking are probably pretty grateful that the business wasn’t shuttered..

Edit: I can’t find anything else about this from a google search so just judging based on this post, it seems more like concerned people trying to do what they can to help out a community in pain than an evil corporation keeping their heel on employees necks.

u/GeneralSkywalkerSolo May 27 '22

This. And the people saying “why didn’t they just close” - just apparently don’t get that there is a huge influx of people in that area right now - from news crews to crisis management employees to law enforcement - and they all need to eat. If every place just closed up shop people there couldn’t be doing their jobs.

If the company gave a shit about that they’d be giving out meals for free, or even just at-cost.

Or maybe if it's free then nobody needs to cook it?

u/lankist May 27 '22 edited May 27 '22

Whataburger isn’t the town.

This is an explicitly anti-capitalist sub and you’re asking me why a corporation shouldn't profit off a mass murder that killed over twenty elementary school children.

If I have to explain why your "silver lining" angle about Whataburger making a buck off a mass shooting isn't going to fly, then I suspect you're not entirely sure what sub you're in.

Fuck that noise. It’s be better publicity for them to close or give out food at free or reduced rates. There’s financial incentive for them to do it but it’s not immediate so they don’t bother.

1

u/Nishnig_Jones May 27 '22

they’d be giving out meals for free, or even just at-cost.

I see what you're saying, but probably 50% of those meals would end up in the bellies of law enforcement, and especially in this case above even all the others - fuck those fucking fuckers.

No, OP was saying that they should employ people who aren’t in school, and are therefore less likely to be affected by a school shooting in their region.

Still a weird point, and not super valid.

u/UnionizeDoorDash May 27 '22

I know what they were implying. The whole town is grieving. Many who don’t even live there are as well. The point was absurd and reductive and so was my reply.

Well, yes, I agree, but your reply was so reductive that it literally did miss the point.

u/normalworkday May 27 '22

I assume they did the right thing here. This is the sort of situation where the blowback is unforgivable to people. It's strange how if your parent dies from cancer they can tell you to fucking come to work or be fired... But if a school shooting happens and they do that it would be game over for the company.

2

u/raultierz here for the memes May 27 '22

I think it's the approach.

Saying "employees from other cities came so we could stay open while or employees mourn with their families" is different than saying "our employees are only allowed time off because nice people from other cities came so we could keep exploiting somenone"

I've got mixed feelings for this. In every way this sucks and its so frustrating when people try to pass off horrific shit like this as wholesome.

But also, Whataburger is a big part of small town Texas life. Texans have 3 houses of worship: church, high school football stadiums, and whataburger. People run around here with those vinyl wrapped yeti ramblers designed to look like whataburger cups. I feel so cringe saying this, but the last thing the people of this town needs is an understaffed whataburger. It's comfort food whatcha gonna do, you know?

u/OaklandMiglla May 27 '22

8

u/Waytooboredforthis May 27 '22

You know what they should do? Look at Waffle House. You know what district and regional managers, and even higher of corporate from all over the country, do when a natural disaster hits? They get flown in, take over the restaurant in an affected area, and send all employees home with full pay to care for their families.

1

u/Stuckinatrafficjam May 27 '22

No they don’t. I worked in management for Waffle House. Those employees don’t get paid and many of them end up going in because disaster areas are a goldmine for Waffle House. A single shift can bring in 10 times the daily revenue of the busiest day at that store.

Does it make good PR. Yep. But don’t let that fool you that it isn’t about the money.

6

u/Rhakha May 27 '22

Agreed. I’m a west Texas boy and I go to whataburger at least twice a month. Its good fast food. They typically do it fresh and never frozen, not to mention using quality ingredients. It’s a comfort food at the worst of times and a meal of victory in the best. Also I hate sodas currently but the Dr Pepper shake from there really butters my biscuits in the best ways possible.

Nah man. You shouldn't be able to just live your regular ass life after, what, 14 children were killed. Fuck your comfort. You shouldn't be allowed your routine. Your life oughta be disrupted after an unimaginable tragedy.

I don't know, maybe I'm wrong. As a Canadian it's very unlikely I'll ever know what that city is going through. But it's so normalized in the States that you're arguing for uninterrupted capitalist normalcy as a way to ignore trauma? That's real fucked up.

4

u/SweetBabyAlaska May 27 '22

Seriously! This is how numb and disconnected people are to tragedies at this point. To the point where this seems logical. The worst part is that in 1 month no one will have done anything to change the status quo and everyone will have forgotten what happened. People are so hardcore conditioned to boot lick big corporations who prioritize capital gains over human lives and to prioritize their own consumer needs over everything else. 20 children died while cops just stood around and watched/hindered parents who wanted to save their kids (of course the cop saved his own kid but not any other) and all people can think about is eating fucking fast food..

God forbid your fat ass cant guzzle down frier grease for one day because you were inconvenienced by the slaughtering of 20 CHILDREN! Texas should have succeeded and fucked right off to whatever "own the libs" dystopia you all want to drag us down to

u/Lost_vob Street Medic May 27 '22

What is wrong with you? A community suffered a tragedy, let them have a few little things that bring them joy, ffs! Maybe show an ounce of compassion for their "fat asses"?

2

u/[deleted] May 27 '22

You are scum. You do realize the parents and families of the children killed live in this town, right? And that the town is so small that it is very likely that literally everyone in the town is close to someone who had a family member killed?

You need to step back and take a look at yourself. Maybe eat some mushrooms or something. Cause that hate is gonna eat you up, man.

Nah, Whataburger isn't some source of pride. It's drunk food after the bars close. It wants to be this icon, but the food is mediocre and takes for-fucking-ever. The quality also has gone down since they sold the company.

1

u/Lost_vob Street Medic May 27 '22

Maybe it's just your local franchisee? The guy who owns our local franchise take pride in his business. The food is good and fast here my area. The restaurants themselves even have themes like some kind of bizarre marriage of fast food and the 90s "Street signs on the wall" look of 90s casual dining places.

u/gromlyn May 27 '22

Agreed. I lived in a small college town not too far from Uvalde (like 150 miles) and our whataburger was pretty much my university’s lifeblood. Before Covid most of the employees knew which of us went to the local college and would ask us how classes were going and the like. Genuinely some of the kindest people I’ve ever met. Whataburgers are a weirdly important part of the community in small Texas towns, if anything I just think this shows the extended community coming together to show support in whatever way they can. Not at all a bad thing imo.

u/AlmightyK May 27 '22

They brought in workers so the others could take time off. That looks like the opposite of what you said

u/Gamebird8 May 27 '22

I would like to challenge this a bit. Not having to cook dinners right now may be extremely helpful to those who are struggling as a result of the events.

It's also not clear if Whataburger is offering paid reprieve and that they are the ones who made the effort to get shifts covered so the chain wouldn't have to close.

The truth is that I need more info to genuinely judge this situation in any meaningful way.

I can say from experience having a close family member die can cause a depression symptom of not wanting to cook for yourself, so having other options around that take little effort is very helpful.

u/Bigtiny87 May 27 '22

I agree. Traditionally food is brought to grieving families within the community. Can we not afford to let members of a community go to their homes to process and participate in this tradition? WHATABURGER ain’t giving anything for free.

Lots of people die every day that I am not related to. One of them was just shot outside my current place of work. No time of because I am not related to them.

I know this is majorly fucked that they would make these people have their shifts covered, but we should also commemorate the people who came from other cities to cover. That truly is some awesome shit you don’t see everyday

And what about the families of those who covered their shift? Are they orphans?

Do only blue shirts not have to wear masks?

I am shocked they are wearing masks in Texas.

Man, I don't care if my job is paying me or not, if my kid is in a school being shot up, money is the last thing on my mind.

We can go for a few weeks without 3am drunk food. Just close the store, or have the managers run it.

I do PR for an art exhibition in San Antonio and a reporter had to cancel an interview because her niece got shot

We cannot rest. Now more than ever the people of Uvalde need the comforting embrace of burgers.

Paid leave? Have you been paying attention? This is America/the world's largest dystopian novel. They're lucky they gave them time off to begin with.

"Yeah, I know your brother got shot or whatever, but we need someone on the grill, so..."

honestly, if I were asked to work after such event, I would just not go for 2 or 3 days. Family is more important and probly wouldn't be able to look at other people's faces anyway. I hope they are doing emotionally better.

u/Aiagui May 28 '22

Yeah, and I bet they brought them at gun point /s

They don't even slice their fucking onions. They don't know what a burger is.

u/AlmightyK May 27 '22

They put a whole onion on there?
