Stiiizy, a popular cannabis brand in Michigan, is offering to hire every Burger King employee who was laid off after a franchise owner closed 26 locations, mostly in metro Detroit, last week.
The company says the new jobs will pay more than most Burger King workers got — $16 an hour for the day shift, $16.50 for the night shift, plus benefits.
The new employees will work at Stiiizy’s manufacturing facility in Orion Township, where the company makes its popular line of vape pods, infused blunts, and pre-rolls.
More than 400 Burger King employees were laid off as a result of the closures.
Stiiizy is offering to immediately hire up to 200 workers. In the coming months, if there’s enough interest from former Burger King employees, Stiiizy says it would hire an additional 200 workers.
The jobs are part-time or full-time — whatever the worker prefers.
