: : Actually, Burger King is the worst of the lot when it comes to employees. I know people who've worked there and it's apparently like hell on earth - hygiene is non-existent, sexual harassment is practically company policy and workplace safety, or lack thereof, is shocking. I'm sure if Burger King was as successful as McDonald's, this would be an anti-BK site. But the principle is still the same.

: : McSpotlight: IF BK had been stupid enough to try and use the libel laws to silence critics, this might have been an anti-BK site; they weren't, and so Burger King are only worthy of a place in our Beyond McDonald's section.

: From what i have heard from a friend who works at BK, is that the female crew are forced to wear tight pants and use make-up a certain way to attract the males.

McSpotlight - well, at least it's not both of them.

Hillbilly - I wouldn't be surprised. Unfortunately the staff are often told they're replacable and should keep their mouths shut if they want to keep their jobs (I've had the same problem).

McSpotlight: Fiona, they are both as bad as each other; merely in different ways. In fact, the entire industry of fast food is predicated on unhealthy food, poorly treated staff and environmental destruction, whether it be Burker King, KFC, McDonald's or Subway. McDonald's got the main hit because they tried to silence people for saying so.
