WASHINGTON, D.C.—After the firing of Steve Bannon as the White House’s chief strategist Friday, an independent business review board confirmed that the Trump White House now has a higher turnover rate than the fast food industry.
The report cited difficult working conditions, unreasonable and unstable upper management, and a lack of meaningful work as the key factors in the White House’s record high turnover rates that exceed even the most entry-level fast food positions.
“Whereas McDonald’s entry-level positions are plagued with a 100% turnover rate annually, the Trump White House is on pace to hit 400% turnover for its first year alone,” a business analyst told reporters. “The average length of a White House staffer’s tenure is now around four hours.”
Surveys also found that McDonald’s drive-thru employees felt a “much higher” degree of satisfaction and purposefulness in their work than employees and staffers at all levels of the White House.
After the report, President Trump reportedly sent a team of White House aides to interview the managers of local Taco Bell, Arby’s, and Subway restaurants to find out how they’re able to keep employees around for longer than six or seven months.
