TikToker and noted Hooters employee @kenzjee recently went viral for a video she posted from the parking lot after being the only employee who showed up to work.

Her video was captioned, “when only one cook shows up to work & you’re on a 45 minute wait because the entire world is understaffed rn,” and features @kenzjee standing outside in the parking lot, wearing her Hooters server uniform, venting to the camera about how at the restaurant that evening, they (she) had, “nothing, no food, no drinks, no servers, nothing” to offer their clientele. The video quickly racked up over 400,000 likes.

While there were an unfortunate number of Kim Kardashian-echoing fuddy-duddies complaining that “no one wants to work anymore,” most TikTokers, including @kenzjee herself, were quick to point out that employees should not be expected to work, as she put it, “basically for free.”

Other users suggested that Hooters improve working conditions and give servers a raise so that they made more than $8 an hour, if they wanted people to feel like coming into work truly benefitted them or enhanced their lives in any way at all.
