The ONLY time I ever go to that chicken place is when PETA is handing out their leaflets there. Fortunately, they've given up picketing at my local place so I don't have to eat that awful stuff anymore.

We can now buy meat at the local farmers' market so it's possible to get humanely raised meat that is not a product of corporate farming. Costs a bit more but it's worth it.

Alright, I've got a confession to make: I work at Macca's.
I know that it's a faceless multinational corporation. I have seen Super Size Me, I know about the McLibel case etc. But only 2 months ago, I was desperate for work, so I filled in an application at this store that was a 10 minute walk from my place. The manager liked me so much, he hired me on the spot.
Now, I'm not going to defend the company and what it's done. I will say that my experiences working for them has been alright though. The young people I work with are very nice and are also students like me trying to earn something. The managers there have also been very kind to me too. Yeah, I have to do a lot of work, but I always make sure I give it 100% at any job that I'm being paid to do.
But when I read about what McDonalds has done, I feel like resigning and boycotting the place, because it stands for everything I hate. On the other hand, I'd feel like letting my peers, family and myself down because I did this for the experience and to meet new people, as well as making some much needed income.
So you see my dilemma here? It's always the people who are at the top who seem to be the bad guys.

Oh God, at your age, I worked as a telephone solicitor, my first job was trying to get people to go to Las Vegas to gamble. Fortunately, I was totally inept but, still, mea culpa.

Purple, you can only do what is available to you. But, since you are aware of the ramifications of the McD philosophy, and since you are on the inside, maybe you can make some inroads on the corporate agenda. Realistically, you cannot do it alone but I'm sure that there are many, many others who share your opinion and will wait with you for a time when your testimony will make a difference.

food poisoning
Re: Evilness of McDonalds by Casey on 21 March 2006 3:23am
I really don't like going into McDonald's. The people who eat there everyday scare me, and just by past experience with that food repels me.
