A young woman was met with a blasting voice when answering her phone, as the man verbally attacked her. Since then, the TikToker has taken online revenge, outing "Jeremy" for what many believe to be a heinous act.
TikToker bonniedoes decided to name and shame Jeremy, who she claims is a manager at one of her local Wendy's restaurants. In her video, she reports that this individual called her late at night to berate her over customer feedback.
The TikTok user alleged that the call came through just before 10:00 pm where a furious individual greeted her. Jeremy was livid over bonniedoes' review, which included suggestions for Wendy's to improve.
In her review, the user stated that she suggested there would be more workers at her local Wendy's if the franchise provided livable wages. During the fiery call, bonniedoes, at one point, exclaimed that the company was struggling to find employees because:
“You’re an [expletive], and you don’t pay people enough to put up with [expletive] like you.”
During this heated exchange, bonniedoes asserted that the man claimed individuals are lazy today. This idleness, he believed, is why people choose not to work, consequently leaving businesses with a shortage of labor.
The TikTok user told him that he was naive to think paying their employees a wage that is beneath the standard salary for one worker is okay when they are doing the job of three employees. Jeremy sarcastically asked her if she would like to take over.
The ex-manager was... taken to the hospital for dehydration.
The TikToker claimed that she reported this individual to Wendy's corporate. Bonniedoes encouraged viewers in the comment section to tag the fast-food franchise which they took advantage of, with many criticizing them from all angles.
There were, of course, some naysayers in the comments. One included @crazyfishinnut, who claimed that these salaries were meant for high schoolers, which doesn't lend itself to a livable wage, calling the current generation of youngsters entitled.
The TikTok user did a follow-up video addressing this issue. She stated that Wendy's shouldn't base their salaries on how little they could pay a child for them to be willing to work, adding that grown-ups fill in the hours while these kids are at school.
Since COVID-19 hit, there have been labor shortages in America. Although businesses are upping salaries and offering bonuses to attract more potential employees, a significant number are still refusing to pay what is appraised as a livable wage.
These allegedly exploitative work environments appear to run rampant in the fast-food industry. Rachael Flores, a General Manager herself at a Burger King, quit because she was no longer happy at the job, adding that it took her down to a dark place.
Flores claimed that her time spent there led to depression. It has been reported that this branch, located in Lincoln, Nebraska, is understaffed, with employees sometimes being forced to work in the kitchen for weeks on end with no air conditioning.
The ex-manager was purportedly once taken to the hospital for dehydration after the temperature reached over 90 degrees. It looks like fast-food chains may have to change their policies regarding employees if they want an efficient workforce.
