I Have Never Been More Down With a Cause Than the Atlanta Waffle House Strike of 2024

Hell no, we won't go! Hell no, we won't go!

I'm generally not one to care about the affairs of other businesses and their employees, but if a group of striking Waffle House employees singing "We Ready" doesn't get you fired up to take on corporate, I don't know what will. I'm ready to join the picket line.

WaHo employees are on the front lines of the service industry. No other restaurant workers have to deal with even a fraction of what Waffle House employees see on a daily basis — I'd guess that's probably why 24/7 security is on their list of demands. These guys are out there giving their all to provide the best breakfast food and most authentic Southern experience possible and they're getting robbed of $3 every shift even if they don't want to use it? What a crock of shit. Put that money back in the pockets of those making the 3 a.m. drunk All-Star Special possible.

I sincerely hope these employees are successful in their efforts, because no group in the service industry deserves to be taken care of more than those scattering, smothering and covering those golden hash browns to perfection. We need to take care of those who take care of us.
