Fast food workers have to put up with a lot of headaches on the job from customers, but it sounds like the inner workings of some of these places cause a lot of stress, too.

That’s according to a former McDonald’s worker named Kai who posted a video on TikTok to sound off against her old employers.

Kai told viewers, “They never told me I was fired. I showed up for when I’m usually scheduled, right? And they just go, ‘Oh.’ Everyone just looks at me like, like, ‘Oh, you’re not on the schedule.'”

Kai continued, “I want to hear it from my boss herself. I want to hear it from at least someone who’s kind of a manager. Like, tell me straight to my face, like, ‘Oh, you’re fired’— but I think they’re too scared because like, why would you not tell me that I’m being let go? You know what I mean?”

And she wasn’t done yet…

Kai accused the restaurant of child labor and blasted them for not paying employees on time or allowing them to utilize direct deposit for their paychecks.

She added, “You know what they had us do in our free time? We would collect receipts, and then they had us fill out the surveys from the customer receipts and just say, like, ‘Oh, this place was amazing.’ That’s what we would do when it was slow. And it’s because their reviews are so ****** that they have to do that. They have to artificially make it so that their location is kind of cool.”

Kai also said that her managers told employees to work even if they suspected they were sick with Covid. She said, “This is a food establishment. You’re working with food.”

Kai posted a follow-up video and said that, because her previous video went viral, things got ugly.

She said, “I think I got a lot of people fired, including myself. There is so much more going on than I thought.”

Kai added, “While I don’t care about this job, I know that other people do, so this is just so wrong on so many levels. And I want to make it right.”
