BurgerKing Closures

was just watching about this on channel 7 ...

These locations are not likely to reopen . That is certainly bad news for all employees involved.


it's the dog's fault

Sorry to hear that

Hopefully the employees will be able to find other work very soon.

In this economy, finding other work won't be a problem.

The work is there, but the people aren’t

One of our better restaurants had to recently close, partly due to a leasing issue but also because they could not get reliable wait staff. This was in a college town and the college had 17000 students! People today don’t want to work. A local news article this week said that 82% of parents are paying part if not all of their kids (18 to 24 years old) cell service, car gas and maintenance, living expenses, etc. The average amount paid was stated to be around $1400/month.

Here is the rub

I'm one of those parents pitching in to help my two (27 & 29) kids, but here is the rub. I failed them when they were young and did not save for their education. It was hard enough to be a good provider with my poor choices, but at least I could recover with hard work, night school, and living expenses that were manageable. My kid's college debt is three times my first mortgage and I can't believe what rents are going for these days. Yes, I help them out, but I also do not finance bad choices. Don't ask me for money with a fresh tattoo on your forearm. At a minimum you're going to get the dad speech. But I have to say it seems like the challenges our young people face today starting out are much steeper than my twenty something days.

College is not for everyone

My son started college after he graduated from high school. He lasted less than six months. He then tried car sales. No money in that. He then went to work for a company making silicon wafers, but the company closed the location where he worked. At that time, he asked me what he should do. I told him to take up a trade. He went to the career center and studied HVAC. He now makes over $70,000 grand a year and bought a 5 bedroom house three years ago. He enjoys the work and will never have to worry about being unemployed again.
