“They wanted to put up a sign to say, you know, sorry, there really won’t be anybody here,” former general manager Rachael Flores told a local ABC affiliate. “Just kind of a laugh for the top management. This was set up yesterday before the opening, and I thought no one would notice because we only made one sign and then it got pretty crazy on Facebook. I got a call from my senior management and they told me I had to withdraw it.

Flores and several other workers had already given two weeks’ notice that they would be leaving their jobs, according to the report.

Workers interviewed for the article said they had worked in a kitchen without air conditioning for weeks, where temperatures sometimes exceeded 90 degrees.

The workers also claimed they worked frequently during lunchtime and worked longer hours to tackle staffing issues.
