Not as rapidly as in the past couple years. That should cause legitimate concern. It points to larger issues. The dismissive nature of this is so off-putting.

Plenty of good restaurants have shuttered their doors, too, but this sub immediately attributes it to management being anti-worker.

Restaurants operate on razor-thin margins, and restaurants close all the time. New restaurants open all the time.
This is nothing new and people shrieking about it like it's the doomsday clock are overreacting.
The entire sector of casual sitdown-dinner-three-days-a-week places is a recent thing and it depended on cheap labor and cheap food they could mark way up. It wasn't going to last forever.
