C'mon, man! Get off that "sycophant" shit!!! McD Worker is right! Not all average Joes are miserable and grumpy at their work. This guy's postings are sincere, and I can tell that he's not reciting lines like a zombie in a trance. I can't believe that people with the opposing view are always being accused of being brainwashed or kissing up to "The Man". Furthermore, if McDonald's and other big corporations have so much "influence" over politics, then how come have both Houses here in the States been under liberal Democrat control for so many years?

The so-called "evil" tobacco companies are a good example. Their supposed "influence" didn't stop the cigarette machines from getting banned, nor did it halt the politicians from passing the UNCONSTITUTIONAL "No TV or Radio ad" laws back in the 70's. The First Amendment was forgotten on that one. {My 16-year-old niece recently got fined because she was caught with cigarettes.}

Getting back to McDonald's employees, should only the Jamals and Bryans' stories be accepted as truth?
