Employees at diners across Georgia have taken to the picket line in protest of low wages, sparking a heated debate on social media.
Dubbed the “Grilled Wages” strike, the workers are demanding better pay and improved working conditions, citing that their current wages are barely enough to make ends meet.
One worker stated, “We work long hours in hot kitchens and barely make enough to pay rent. It’s time for the restaurant owners to recognize our value and pay us what we deserve.”
However, not all Georgians are in support of the strike. One Twitter user wrote, “If you don’t like the pay, find another job. Don’t ruin my dinner plans.”
Despite the backlash, the workers remain determined to fight for their rights and are calling on customers to support their cause by boycotting the diners until the owners meet their demands.
