what do you think of Mcdonalds?
    #1433364 - 04/06/03 01:50 PM (13 years, 7 months ago)



Nutrition: Many nutritionists argue that the type of high fat, low fibre diet promoted by McDonald's is linked to serious diseases such as cancer, heart disease, obesity and diabetes.

Advertising: McDonald's spend over two billion dollars each year on advertising: the Golden Arches are now more recognised than the Christian Cross. Using collectable toys, television adverts, promotional schemes in schools and figures such as Ronald McDonald the company bombards their main target group: children.

Employment: Is McDonald's a great job opportunity or are they taking advantage of high unemployment to exploit the most vulnerable people in society, working them very hard for very little money? Complaints from employees range from discrimination and lack of rights, to understaffing, few breaks and illegal hours, to poor safety conditions and kitchens flooded with sewage

Enviroment: One of the most well-known and sensitive questions about McDonald's is: are they responsible for the destruction of tropical forests to make way for cattle ranching? McDonald's say no. Many people say yes. So McDonald's sue them. Not so many people say yes anymore, but does this mean McDonald's aren't responsible?

Animal cruelty: As the world's largest user of beef they are responsible for the slaughter of hundreds of thousands of cows per year. In Europe alone they use half a million chickens every week, all from windowless factory farms. All such animals suffer great cruelty during their unnatural, painful and short lives, many being kept inside with no access to fresh air and sunshine, and no freedom of movement - how can such cruelty be measured?

Freedom of speech: McDonald's know full well how important their public image is and how damaging it would be to them if any of the allegations started becoming well-known amongst their customers. So they use their financial clout to influence the media, and legal powers to intimidate people into not speaking out, directly threatening free speech. The list of media organisations who have been sued in the past is daunting, and the number of publications suppressed or pulped is frightening. But what are the lessons of the successful and ever-growing anti-McDonald's campaign for those also determined to challenge those institutions which currently dominate society?

chances are you already know how shit they are but if you dont here is a link for you

I don't care about all of the hippie shit (even though I am a quasi-vegetarian, simply for health reasons), but the smell from McDonalds is so putrid, that everytime someone I know eats there, I want to murder them with a blunt spoon. My god, that is the most awful smell known to human kind, how can anyone possibly eat there?

What did Ronal Mcdonald ever do to you guys anyways? Just because he looks like an insane murderous clown, does not make that true!

Even if "the truth" did come out,i don't think it would stop a lot of the people that eat(?) there from continuing to patronize the place....

I hate the smell too. I eat there like once a year and I always feel like shit an hour after eating it. It can't possably be good for you.

I don't know about 'animal cruelty' or anything, but killing animals for food isn't cruel imo. It's what happens, deal with it.
