The image of two beleaguered employees following a harrowing four-hour Wednesday shift wound up on social media feeds and online discussion platform Reddit, where it garnered some 20,000 comments and 59,000 shares as of Friday morning.
"[This Domino's] had a weekend worth of food and it was gone within 4 hours,” wrote July DeLuna, who submitted the pic through news station KABB Fox29's Chime In page.
“This team helped those that needed help. These are the essential workers that need recognition. They were the only pizza place open. Every pizza place was closed but [D]ominos stayed open to help those in need.”
News4SA posted the image to its Facebook page Thursday, and the comments section now full of demands that Texas raise its minimum wage.
“Also worth noting that they probably make less than $10 an hour, and the manager will probably get a sales bonus because of this spike,” Facebook user Jeremy Ricci wrote. “Raise the minimum wage.”
“I’d like to offer dinner at one of my restaurants to both of these employees,” the Jardin and Tre Trattoria owner commented. “If anyone knows who they are. Please let me know.”
