This is my situation. I am a shift manager at a Taco Bell franchise. Our shifts are consistently and purposefully understaffed so they can save money on labor, paying less for employees but at the cost putting that workload on you. For example, an average shift should have at least 9 or more people to cover the operations of the store and make the shift run smoothly. We run our shifts with 3 or 4 people and even less, which makes the work, especially during rush time, super difficult and stressful. So, while there should be 3 people on each food line, its often 1 person doing the job of three, or the job of six, since most times I'd be by myself doing drive thru orders and lobby orders simultaneously. Because I work the closing shifts, I have often stayed completely by myself at the store, lets say after 12 am, because either someone calls out and cant come to work, or they simply fail to schedule personnel to stay with the closing manager. They also dont like paying overtime, so instead of giving me 40 hours a week, (since I am full time) the area coach would sometimes give me 37 or 38 so if I go over my hours while closing, it does not end up in overtime.
Thanks in advance.
There is nothing stated in your question that would make this a case of discrimination. You said yourself that Taco Bell treats most if not all its employees the same way they treat you, right? That eliminates discrimibation as a reason.
