Sure, I agree that the primary objective of any business is to make profit. You're crazy if you're in business to do otherwise. My argument is that the treatment of the people making the profit is just as, if not even more important. You cannot put physical demands on people that my ex-store placed on its workers. And as a result of the numerous times you place pressure on a 15/16yo kid tyrying to do his best, ultimately, moral is reduced to nothing. The treatment of employees is the responsibility of the owner/operator and the company, but their single track mind on profit is clouding the deeper issue. Now I don't know your situation. I presume that your boss is more understanding and a little fairer than the Bendigo Franchisee. But I can only form my opinion on what I have experienced. And that experience left me in no doubt that Maccas, and the owner/operators or nothing short of savages hell bent on the dollar above all else.

: i work at one of victorias bussiest store, and i can get close done between 70-80minutes whats wrong with you.You also cannot base your opinion on one store, there are currently 687 stores in Australia and they do not all operate like yours, as a uni graduate you should understand that a business is to make money, if sales re not coming in well of course alot of pressure is placed on the managers, they have to make sure that quality, service and cleanliness is always 100% as it can contribute to loss of sales.
