SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (KMOV.com) -- A billboard in southwest Missouri is making headlines across the state.

The billboard reads: “GET OFF YOUR BUTT! Get. To Work. Apply Anywhere.”

Brad Parke, the general manager of Greek Corner Screen and Embroidery in Springfield, said he is trying to lock down employees like many other business owners. So, he and a handful of other business owners banded together to pay for the billboard.

“So many people have their feelings on their sleeve,” he said. “Get over it! It’s time to grow up.”

Parke said the billboard is a sarcastic attempt to motivate people to get back to work.
