Hypocrites? You sure paint with a large brush. Not everyone hates McDonald's for all the reasons given by McSpotlight. I can wear Nike shoes because they're comfortable and long-lasting, and at the same time I can hate McDonald's for having rude and incompetent employees. There's nothing hypocritical about that. I saw a documentary with the head of Nike. I believe the guy behind it was Mike Moore, if he's the one who did Roger and Me. In it, Moore tried to get the head of Nike to build a factory in Flint, Michigan. The head of Nike wouldn't do it for obvious reasons, although he acted like he would seriously consider the idea. Moore tried to get him to donate money to Flint schools, but Nike's leader was reluctant. I still have Nike shoes (they last so long, I haven't had to purchase any in a long time), but this documentary changed my opinion of the company. I have a feeling a lot of people would stop wearing Nike shoes, and stop buying from other companies, if they were exposed in this way.
