Let's hear both sides of the story!

Hello, I'm an employee (a happy one) of a McDonald's Franchisee. I recieve proper pay (i'm also happy with that). We have good management, good sanitation procedure, etc. I have not been exploited in any way, shape, or form. I'm pretty sure I speak for the other MILLIONS of employees. I've not had weird propaganda forced into my head nor have I been brainwashed, I am simply loyal to my successful employer. I am not fat, but I am american, and americans like good food. McDonald's provides food for the mainstream. If you all resent meat-eating people, well, let's just say your in a GREAT minority. Also, McDonald's actually owns NO cattle farms, It buys from the farmers, thus producing JOBS (something you could use). My main intent here is not to slander, however it is difficult for me to control my contempt. As for your "toxic waste" sob story, McDonald's doesn't even consume anything that could remotely become toxic persay, unless you left it in a nuclear reactor for 10,000 years(c'mon, our trash is leftover food and paper, and plastic consumables!) all other fast-food services dispose of garbage in the same manor as McDonald's Corp. Only McDonald's (unlike the others) is sacrificing profit to reduce garbage output, which is already low. McDonald's has always recycled. You know, seriously, I don't know where you get this crap. It's what I call jealousy, or Verbal Diarrhea. While your sitting at home, no doubt contemplating how your going to take over the world from your couch, I'm busting my butt at work, providing courteous, prompt, and delicious service to my customers. I'm sorry if you have had a bad experience at McDonald's, but can't whining ever go to far? C'mon, quit cryin'. Oh, and by the way, if you have such an anti-capitalism, put the free-enterprise out of business attitude, why don't you move to China, they are COMMUNIST there!

Some other points:

you say all kinds of things and you point many fingers, but WHERE ARE THE FACTS?


thank you for your time.

McSpotlight: If it's facts your after, look through the 10,000 pages of court evidence we have...or the witness statements; can you provide evidence to prove them wrong?
