Mcdonalds is a successful company, but that is only because they exploit children throughout the world. There advertising is disgraceful to say the least because they manipulate against children. There advertisements are not informative, they are persuasive to the extreme that little children will pester parents to make sure that they go.
At the moment Mcdonalds Happy Meals in England have TY beanie babies. On tv the ads have children and they tell people to get down there and collect them. How are they allowed to do this. In a perfect market this disrespectful corporation would not be in existence anymore.
Mcdonalds do not break the law, you are correct there. But surely because they are a large corporation with an annual profit of £20 Billion they should do more.
Mcdonalds are a hopelessly unethical business, and they do not face up to there social responsibilities.
They do not desderve to be trading wake up and smell the truth. Lets all get together and bring this dfisgraceful corporation down.
