Photo Of Exhausted Domino's Employees Working Through Storm Goes Viral
A photograph of two Domino's workers in the US has gone viral, as people call for higher wages for essential workers.
The picture shows two staff members, clearly exhausted as they work through the winter storm which is currently affecting much of the country.
Food delivery services in many states have been disrupted by the icy weather conditions, with many places forced to close and workers unable to attend their jobs, while there have also been supply chain issues.
The photo was taken in San Antonio in Texas, which has been particularly impacted by the weather.
It was snapped by a News 4 San Antonio viewer called Judy DeLuna, who wrote: "This Dominos in San Antonio. Working during this crisis.
"They had a weekend worth of food and it was gone within 4 hours. This team helped those that needed help. These are the essential workers that need recognition.
"They were the only pizza place open. Every pizza place was closed but dominos stayed open to help those in need."

After it was shared with the US broadcasting channel, reporter Emily Baucum shared it on Twitter and the response was immediate.
One person replied: "I used to work at Domino's. Peak hours I would slap out over 200 pizzas an hour. I'd go home with flour in my belly button.
"I work in health care now and the first thing I do when looking at applications is see if they have food service experience. They can hustle."
Dominoes should pay them a full weekend's pay since they did a full weekend's work.

Someone else suggested: "$15 minimum wage now. None of you office types work as hard as fast food workers do. I know because I work in an office.
A third added: "Give them enough money to live if you give a s*** about the work they do. Recognition doesn't put food on the table of the people feeding their neighbors."
LADbible has contacted Domino's for comment.
