The latest trend at companies who pay low wages is to post signs saying that they can’t find anyone who wants to work.
Two ex-Dollar General workers, who were apparently fed up with their employer, used the tactic of signs on windows to shame the company right after quitting.
One of the employees tweeted, “Got real tired of all those ‘no one wants to work’ signs on closing stores. This is how my coworker and I quit our job today. Speak truth to power!”

One sign reads, “Closed indefinitely because Dollar General doesn’t pay a living wage or treat their employees with respect.”
And another stated, “If you don’t pay people enough to live their lives, why should they slave away for you?”
The replies to the tweet were overwhelmingly supprotive, with former store employees weighing in.
