    In this video I discuss the recent closures & pending bankruptcy of the once great Red Lobster. I explain all of the different factors that played into it & how they set themselves up for failure nearly 10 years ago.

    {The Wall Street Journal | 01 May 2024}

    Red Lobster is in trouble. The seafood chain recently known for its endless shrimp special reported $11 million in losses in the third quarter, and its parent company Thai Union Group has announced it will sell its majority stake.

    WSJ explains what went wrong with the fast casual dining business and looks at what could come next for Red Lobster.

    What Went Wrong explores the challenging conditions and decisions that led to a company's downturn.

    I really liked Red Lobster, but stopped going because of the increasing prices. I never ordered the endless shrimp.

    I went there for endless shrimp a couple years ago but was pissed because cold boiled shrimp with cocktail sauce was not part of the endless shrimp offerings. You had to get one of the butter sauce or alfredo sauce shrimp and pasta dishes. How many plates of alfredo sauce can you eat.

    I can eat a shlt-pile of boiled shrimps, however

    Never had endless shrimp but used to drop by the bar frequently for draft beer and fried squid or clam chowder when I lived closer . Now Im smack dab in middle of two locations that are about 20 miles ea direction and I dont usually go that far for a beer, It is though about how far I want to be at minimum from the unwashed masses.

    The END Of Fast Food
    https://odysee.com/@actualjusticewar...of-fast-food:7
    {Actual Justice Warrior | 23 May 2024}

    In this video I discuss the crash of the fast food industry due to inflation raising prices far beyond what consumers are willing to pay. As a result multiple fast food companies are struggling & may be on the verge of collapse.

    So now that minimum wage is up, do you still need to tip?

    Servers have their own minimum wage below everyone else's minimum wage.

The mere act of distinguishing between "essential workers and businesses" versus "non-essential workers and businesses" is all the proof you need that full-blown Soviet-level Marxism in America is a fait accompli. If your government can tell you that you are a non-essential worker, or that your business is a non-essential business, and shutter you or have you fired, your government is a communist government, full-stop.

    We are long past the point where dissolving the DC government is legally and morally justified under the Constitution and Holy Scripture. The government there is an alien occupying force, and this fact is evident on its face. We The People simply need to wake up and drive these 21st-century Redcoats back to hell where they came from...

    Why? Just to confuse the consumer? Pay them and eliminate tipping.
