Hello dear reader(s)!
Now, keep in mind that the above story is disputed by the good folks over at McDeath’s and as of now, these are just allegations. But think for a moment…who do you believe?
Do you believe the company that for years denied there was any sugar in their fries and then finally were forced to admit they were using dextrose, or do you believe the people who were or witnessed people who “looked homeless” being denied service as paying customers?
Do you believe the company that claimed it did not use the ammonia washed “pink slime” until the videos came out, or do you believe the people?
Poor people are under attack, and McDonald’s has been guilty of keeping people in poverty for years. They do not pay their employees well at all.
They looked the other way when one franchisee of almost all the locations in my hometown was knowingly hiring undocumented workers for decades (until ICE raided, and only THEN, did they sanction him and take away his franchise rights).
(As an aside, that former franchisee was granted a business license to open a Fudrucker’s and a Popeye’s because money talks to corrupt politicians.)
Not many people believe that fast-food workers are worth more than the federal minimum wage, and honestly, some aren’t.
But some work their asses off. Harder than any desk jockey pulling in 40K a year for data entry into a spreadsheet. I know, because I’ve done both. Sort of. Not fast food, but the fast food of coffee. And that was hard work. Worth much more than I got paid. And the job I made the most at…honestly? No big deal. At least the assholes I had to deal with in that job were the same assholes, instead of a different entitled feeling asshole who thinks they know about coffee but really have no fucking clue but want you to think they know.
I’m just going to throw this out there…If you are a regular customer of the major coffee chain (you know the one I am talking about) and believe you have any knowledge or taste about coffee…well, I will give you that sometimes they are the only place with a drive through.
Oh, and by the way…It is DRIVE THROUGH!!!! THROUGH! You do NOT drive THRU! THRU is not a word, yet I notice there is no red underline for spelling. Do you know what does get flagged for spelling? Neutrophils, Every fucking time. Why?
Because we are all so stupid as to believe that someone who punches keys on a computer and sits on their ass all day long is worth more than the people making their food that they are too fucking lazy and/or stupid to make themselves. Because we are so lazy and stupid and hate to think so much that we believe THRU is a fucking word, but don’t recognize neutrophils!!!!!!
Fuck, when I did telephone customer service and gave the same, dumb, scripted responses to idiots whining because they never bothered to reboot their cellphones, I made twice what I made in the fast food of coffee.
Okay Josh, breathe.
No, fuck that, I still have a couple of points here.
- Even if all of this is made up (and let’s be real, the strategy to win back customers by these purveyors of death is to make a live action Hamburglar, so I am inclined to believe it), it still doesn’t answer the question of why anyone would continue to eat there. Their food barely meats the definition of food. Anything they make, you can make in the same amount of time, only better and healthier. Granted, you’d have to get your ass out of your car…or maybe if you go on your lunch you could, oh, I don’t know…PACK A LUNCH INSTEAD?? In this fucking society, where the people try to tell you what you can and can not put in your bodies, how is fucking McDonald’s still legal? What causes more deaths, marijuana, or coronary artery disease?
- Rich people don’t eat at McDonald’s except during photo ops. Do you know why? Because they know that dollar menus and convenience food target the poor. The workers pressed for time. The rich eat at gourmet restaurants or have personal chefs. They don’t touch that shit, because they don’t want to die. Now I’m not going to go tin-foil hat on you and say this shit is designed to kill the proletariat, but I am saying they know that it is killing the people, and they are all for it.
There is a war on the poor, the middle class, and the workers. There are obstacles put into place to prevent you from rising to power, unless you go into politics and take their
bribes campaign contributions or entertain them like modern-day court jesters or gladiators. And as long as you keep eating what they feed to you, nothing will ever change.
Boycott McDonald’s. Not just for the sake of the homeless, and the workers…but for the sake of your health.
