Mr. Krabs is observing charts based on Krusty Krab income when he sees something. Profit is down by $3! He charges employees for doing certain things. Of course, this is completely outrageous, so SpongeBob and Squidward go on strike. If SpongeBob knew what a strike was, he would not have gone (because he got fired). Squidward makes a sign saying “Krusty Krab Unfair”, but SpongeBob misinterprets it as “Krusty Krab Funfair”, making the restaurant more popular. After lots of similar incidences, teens take their jobs. In addition, after SpongeBob says "We're gonna stay on strike, until we get what we deserve! Even if it takes forever!" Squidward gets scared of staying on strike with SpongeBob forever. As Squidward runs out the door, Mr. Krabs is at the door to beg him to come back because he wants to fire the teens who got their jobs because they wouldn't stop bugging him. Therefore, they make a deal so that Squidward and SpongeBob can get their jobs back. However, SpongeBob does not know about this, so he wrecks the Krusty Krab. However, when Mr. Krabs is in his office and sees the ruins, he falls to pieces (literally) and yells "Squidward! SpongeBob". Squidward and SpongeBob say "Yes, Mr. Krabs?" SpongeBob says, Here it comes Mr. Krabs says "In order to pay off these damages, you two are gonna work for me, forever!"
