$18 dollars an hour is hardly enough to work in a public place during a pandemic


Gee, so 3 dollars more will pay the bills when you are sucking wind?


$3 more to suck Covid?


Hey Sheetz. Keep the wages at $3/hour more after the virus. All you have to do is raise the cost of the coffee, sandwiches, and other grab and go items by 10 cents. You do a whopping business, so I know this is doable. We appreciate all the hard work of the Sheetz staff and everyone else who has to still keep showing up to work everyday.


Sadly they probably wont, but it is nice to see them stepping up, now if other stores would follow suit, that would be good thing to see.



Actually they may be following Wawa's lead who did this last week. Do you think any of this would be possible if the companies did not know that financial help was forthcoming?


Ha! They're not doing it to be "nice"; they have 1300 openings! They can 't get folks now at their miserable wages. I guarantee those wages won't stay up once we are through this~ that is unless, workers fight, stage a strike, organize a union, etc.
