Restaurant Blames Government Handouts for ‘Short Staffed’ and ‘Slow Service’

Honesty is the best policy, and that’s exactly what one Taqueria restaurant is providing for its clientele.

Honesty is the best policy, and that’s exactly what one Taqueria restaurant is providing for its clientele. Specifically, the restaurant is asking patrons to be patient with “slow service” because they are short-staffed thanks to the government.

In an honest plea to customers, the owner of the popular Folsom, California restaurant, Taco Loco, posted a “slow service sign” warning which reads:

“To our loyal customers. Sadly, due to government and state handouts, no one wants to work anymore. Therefore, we are short-staffed… Please be patient with our staff that did choose to come to work today.”

The owner of the restaurant did not immediately want to speak to Sacramento’s local CBS news station about his sign, but John Voelz, owner of a restaurant just down the street from the Taqueria had similar sentiments. “It’s hard to find people who want to work right now,” said Voelz.

“They want us to hire more people right now. We’re trying to hire more baristas, we’re trying to hire cooks. It is really hard” added Voelz. A restaurant frequenter Erica Oresky says with layoffs, “why not go on unemployment? It is an easy paycheck.”

President of the Greater Sacramento Economic Council Barry Broome explains, “until the government check stops coming out, which is September, we’re going to continue to have labor shortages and that’s going to continue to challenge small business.”

    The teacher’s union rep is stating an opinion. She couldn’t possibly know how this will play out. the vaccine is being used outside the normal years long trial periods. The other side of her argument might sound like this. How does anyone know what the long-term ramifications are of these EUA (Emergency Use Vaccines) when no time to test them has occurred? Thousands of people have already died from the vaccine and many others have suffered health issues due to the vaccine. She is pushing her own agenda and taking advantage of her perceived power position by spouting her opinion. Maybe she should read the studies that show that adequate Vit D and other supplements keep the immune system on guard against the virus. And common sense says that people in Florida have better direct sun from which Vit D comes. Come on, people…use your intelligence.

    People would hopefully make more working as servers than on unemployment….can’t see them choosing “handouts”. Insulting to workers.

    It’s not about “making” more or less. It’s about not working and making “enough.” This automatic assumption that unemployment pays more is idiotic. It doesn’t have to pay MORE to convince thousands of people to choose to sit home, eat cereal and play Xbox.

On Tuesday, the White House announced that Vice President Kamala Harris has tested positive for COVID-19 and is not currently showing symptoms.

“Today, Vice President Harris tested positive for COVID-19 on rapid and PCR tests,” said Kirsten Allen, press secretary to the vice president. “She has exhibited no symptoms, will isolate and continue to work from the Vice President’s residence. She has not been a close contact to the President or First Lady due to their respective recent travel schedules. She will follow CDC guidelines and the advice of her physicians. The Vice President will return to the White House when she tests negative.”

Harris wrote on Twitter that she was going to continue to isolate and is showing no symptoms.

“Today I tested positive for COVID-19. I have no symptoms, and I will continue to isolate and follow CDC guidelines. I’m grateful to be both vaccinated and boosted,” Harris tweeted.

Harris last reportedly saw President Biden at the Easter Egg Roll on April 18 before leaving for California, which she returned from on April 25.

The vice president has been vaccinated against COVID-19 and has received two booster shots, receiving the second booster on April 1.

“Yesterday I received my second COVID-19 booster shot,” Harris tweeted on April 2. “We know that getting vaccinated is the best form of protection from this virus and boosters are critical in providing an additional level of protection. If you haven’t received your first booster—do it today.”

At Least 3 US Airlines Will Restore Flight Privileges To Some Mask Violators

Published

At least three major U.S. airlines – Delta Air Lines, United Airlines and American Airlines – have now said they will allow some passengers who were banned from their planes over mask violations to have their flight privileges restored – determined on a case-by-case basis.

On Wednesday, Delta released a statement saying, “At Delta, nothing is more important than the safety and security of our customers and our people. With masks now optional, Delta will restore flight privileges for customers on the mask non-compliance no-fly list only after each case is reviewed and each customer demonstrates an understanding of their expected behavior when flying with us.”

“Any further disregard for the policies that keep us all safe will result in placement on Delta’s permanent no-fly list. Customers who demonstrated egregious behavior and are already on the permanent no-fly list remain barred from flying with Delta,” the statement added.

United Airlines similarly announced it will allow passengers it banned for not following mask rules to be allowed to fly again.

“On a case-by-case basis, we will allow some customers who were previously banned for failing to comply with mask-related rules to fly United again — after ensuring their commitment to follow all crewmember instructions on board,” United Airlines said in a statement.

American Airlines will also allow passengers banned for violating mask rules “to resume travel at some point in time,” according to the company’s chief government affairs officer, Nate Gatten.

“In cases where an incident may have started with face mask noncompliance and escalated into anything involving something more serious, or certainly an assault on one of our key members or customers, those passengers are going to remain on our permanent internal refuse list and will never be allowed to travel with us again,” Gatten said.
