: I work at Mcdonalds, tel me more negative bugstory's about Mcdonalds.
: I know the food is bad but they pay me good.
: I think I know they are bad for our invironnement but I'am not for sure what do I have to do? Keep on working ore set them up and quit the job. GIVE ME SOME ADVISE AND INFO ABOUT WHAT IS HAPPENING AT MCDONALDS FOR REAL.

First off, if you can find other employment, you might want to do it. In my opinion and that of many others, McDonald's ruins the environment, commits cruelty to animals, sells unhealthy food to children, and is all around a symbol of what's wrong with big business. So, consider another place to work. Check out the "Issues" section of this website for more details about how bad McDeath's is.

As for setting them up and quitting, I don't advise it. First off, you can find yourself in a heap of legal trouble, meaning possible fines, jail time, or both, but guaranteed hassle. Secondly, setting them up would provide them an excuse, for example: "No, we always cook our food completely, but this disgruntled employee SET US UP!" See what I mean? It would be far better all around if you documented any bad practices you witness by writing it down, including day and time, in as much detail as possible, and passing it along to either McSpotlight, a consumer activist group, or even the media. DON'T MAKE ANYTHING UP, just report the facts as you see them, and get a co-worker to sign off it possible as a witness.

Good luck in finding a new job, etc.

: Thanks
