There is not 1 operator I know that is staffed to the amount they want to be atSome down over 25 employees a store - I am in that one - people do not come in when scheduledI am having MGRS leaving now (even after pay increases & bonuses). they now can work fromhome - they will make less money but they don’t care - working short handed is driving them outNo one has the answer - our area of the country is starting at $14 to $15 a hour & still cannot get enoughhelp - this is the worst staffing I have ever seen in my 40 years as an operator. If there is a SILVER BULLET please let me know - I am just shooting blanks since January
There is no SILVER BULLET most of our co-op is at a similar shortage even more money per hour seems to have a verylittle effect on applications I do not see this getting better any time soonUNIONS - are at it againCheck out a news article about DOLLARGENERAL in Maine - not a good readjust GOOGLE it Coming to a MCD near you?????Hope not
Maybe no silver bullet but there might be some light at the end of the tunnel in that many red-state governors are making plans to cut back on state and federal benefits to force people back to work. Of course, that won't help businesses in states with democrate governors who are following the Biden agenda.Or as one Owner/Operator put it in the latest Kalinowski survey, "I never thought I'd be in competition with the government in staffing my stores"..

People, your missing their point.You have relinquished control of sales, and corporate can control from afar your promotion engine, your pos pricing, and your menu boards.They routinely download stuff, no matter if you individually disagree with participation.When compared to a decade ago, they can easily control your resraurant in the name of technology, and... they only are getting more and more dug in.And it was ALL operator driven... the words the franchisee system will die by...
Here's another way they control what you say whether you agree or disagree:McDonald’s announced Tuesday that it’s partnering with the White House to promote the COVID-19 vaccines on the fast-food chain’s redesigned coffee cups.The promotion will begin in July and US customers will see new McCafe cups and delivery seal stickers that feature the Department of Health and Human Services-created slogan, “We Can Do This.”The cups will also direct customers toward vaccines.gov, which helps people find nearby appointments and provides vaccine safety information.Don't remember McD doing this virtue signaling during the flu season. Why not?
