An In-N-Out Burger worker went viral on TikTok after sharing her discovery that employees will be receiving a $2 hourly raise—after she had already quit.
In the clip, user @celvil711 as she films herself laughing in her In-N-Out uniform, over a popular audio of creator Brittany Broski laughing. The text overlay reads, “me deciding to quit.”
Her face then drops, flipping the camera around to reveal a poster detailing the employee raises. The text overlay reads, “we get a $2 raise,” as the audio plays the Apple Pay ‘ding.’
The poster explains that the new starting pay for In-N-Out workers is $19 an hour, increasing $2 from the previous starting pay of $17 an hour. The sheet states that the raise applies for employees of all pay rates, the highest making up to $23 an hour. The new pay goes into effect Dec. 12.
The content creator expresses her disappointment with her decision in the caption. “Y’all I’m gonna start making $20 and then leave for an internship that starts at $14,” she wrote. The TikToker did not share what state she was employed in.
