Freaky Fast, irresponsible advertising.
No so much news as it is a WHAT THE FUCK, hasn't the federal government already weighed in on this?
"Freaky fast" is the motto in the commercials for Jimmy John's sub sandwich delivery.
Having worked for a major pizza franchise. This is a dangerous climate for a minimum wage worker to work in. The companies DONT pay for the car insurance. They don't pay for accidents. And they DONT give a shit about road conditions and between the customers and owners, it puts unsafe pressure on the driver,
There was a case, in the late 80s or early 90s where because of the speed of a driver, because of the climate of "get it there as fast as you can' someone died. As a result a federal law forbid this kind of advertising. How the fuck did it get pealed back?
This is further proof that big business does not give a shit about the safety of the employees, whom they don't pay shit in the first place, and don't care about the climate of pressure they put on the employees that can and does get them hurt or the public hurt with this unsafe attitude.
Is it going to take an employee killing themselves trying to get a 5 dollar sub for a lousy tip? Is it going to take them killing a pedestrian or another driver because of the climate of the corporate goons>
As customers WE should care about the safety of those who deliver us ANYTHING. As a company I think it is heartless and neglectful to put the buck above safety as part of your marketing scheme. It sets up an unsafe working environment.
Jimmy Johns does NOT give a shit about the safety of the public or the safety of it's employees, otherwise it would not use "freaky fast" as a marketing ploy. I know this because these types of delivery companies, hide behind the 'I didn't tell them to do that", when they damned well know that they use fear of loss of job to intimidate them into taking those risks. It may say on their company paper "safety first", but that is just a liablity issue on paper, a loophole.
Nader took on an entire industry because cars were not safe. Bad policies that use loopholes which in reality put society at risk, should be taken on just like Nader did with cars.
Do we want planes to take off without being inspected first just because we want to get there fast? SHAME ON YOU JIMMY JOHNS. If you gave a fuck about safety, you wouldn't advertise like that.
