The management of a Pizza Hut in Jacksonville, Florida won the “douchiest response to Hurricane Irma” award when he told employees they would be fired unless they placed themselves at risk by sticking around to deliver food to people who refused to evacuate the hurricane.
Management posted a disgusting list of guidelines for employees who felt the need to safely get the hell out of Dodge before their lives were threatened.
According to the memo, employees were not permitted to leave until 24 hours before Irma hit and no matter what the f*ck was happening were required to return within 72 hours.
“Failure to show for these shifts, regardless of reason, will be considered a no call/no show and documentation will be issued,” the notice says. “After the storm, we need all TM’s available to get the store up and running and serve our communities as needed.”

After receiving negative publicity, Pizza Hut released a statement clarifying that this is not policy and that the manager had been dealt with:
“We absolutely do not have a policy that dictates when team members can leave or return from a disaster, and the manager who posted this letter did not follow company guidelines. We can also confirm that the local franchise operator has addressed this situation with the manager involved.”
It is unclear if the manager was fired, or if he will be able to continue abusing employees by telling them that a minimum wage job is something they must be willing to die for.
