Wayne Pankratz, an Applebee's franchisee exec, has been fired after an email sent on March 9th was leaked to the public earlier this week. The email, which reveals how little Applebee's cares for their restaurant employees, caused an online fury and prompted mass resignations at some restaurants. The message stated that high gas prices and the end of stimulus payments would increase the number of applications the restaurants would receive and would allow them to cut wages to their employees who the email acknowledges already live paycheck to paycheck at their current wages. Applebee's corporate office released a statement that the views expressed in the letter do not represent those held by the company. This despite the leaked email also showing multiple forwards and replies showing a highly positive response to the message.
