@Matthew Lawrence Yes, you've finally pinpointed the difference between New York and the rest of the world: It's the smartphone monopoly that makes it the Greatest City On Earth.
@stuffisthings I believe the flow chart is thus: Crackdown on theft taking leads to managers changing jobs more often and caring less about their own performance/the quality of the restaurant they are currently at, which in turn means the sub-management staff don't have as much reason to care.

What's a channel?
