McDonald’s allegedly did a shitty thing? McDonald’s allegedly did a shitty thing!
Hello loyal Shade Court readers, I have some news that you probably will not like, but I believe will make us all stronger in the long run. I, Judge Brown, she who presides nobly over the high court of Shade, am retiring. This will be my last Shade Court post for the foreseeable future. Anything can change—perhaps…
It is so hard to come to terms with the fact that we aren’t babies anymore and can’t just suck on a tit for nourishment. McDonald’s Japan is maybe having a harder time with that realization than most.
No currently-legal profession takes more public crap for demanding to be treated like human beings than food service workers. Here’s how and why every single argument against them is complete horseshit.
If you know your argument that restaurant owners universally revile the idea of an increased minimum wage is complete bullshit, that’s still OK! You can just make shit up, as one of the main restaurant industry lobbyists recently did.
Look, I’m mad about the fact that McDoubles cost $1.29 now, too, but some things are just too far.
“Hey, you know what you should try? Ordering off the SECRET MENU, bro. Like, ask for a McChicken, but instead of the chicken, get them to put, like, a McFlurry on there! #lifehack #yolo #iamlungcancerinhumanform”
This story is literally Old Man Yells At Plastic Toy. Strap in.
Pictured above: what McDonald’s desperately wishes it was offering.
On Friday, Chipotle announced they’d soon be offering sick days, paid vacation, and tuition reimbursement for all employees—not just salaried workers.
What...what are you even going for here, McDonald’s? Why is any of this happening? Why are you doing this to us?!
Yesterday, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo put the fast food industry on notice when he proposed to raise fast food wages in the Empire State through use of an appointed “Wage Board,” circumventing the state legislature. But do such powers fall under his purview? Actually, most likely yes.
The Washington Post published a bizarre op-ed from writer/director/actor/natural brunette James Franco today. It’s about McDonald’s. Franco is saddened by restaurant’s current slump and wanted let everyone know that he hopes the golden arches can successfully rejuvenate sales. Why? Because he worked there for three…
Welcome to Would U?, an academic forum in which Ellie shares her gross crush of the week and ask if you, too, would bang that person. In Ellie’s place, I will ask today’s most important question.
It’s a tale as old as time: a fast food restaurant and an American fall in love; the American becomes unhealthy and vows to change his or her ways; the fast food restaurant taps experts to ensure its customers aren’t going anywhere; the cycle continues.
Well, that’s one way to handle a shitty drunk college kid customer.
If someone asks for bacon on their burger, that means they want bacon on their burger. Capiche?
Did you know that Taylor Swift had a twin sister? No? Well, that’s probably because like Elizabeth Olson — who was confined to the basement of the Full House house until Mary-Kate and Ashley’s careers fizzled — Swift’s banished her evil twin to Japan where she’s had to make a living selling hamburgers fries in a red…
A new study indicates that low wages are such a burden that fully half the fast food industry's workers must rely on public assistance programs just to get by. It's a pretty reasonable assertion at this point that the system is not working as intended.
Great news, everyone! McDonald's has just announced they're going to increase all minimum wage jobs to $1 over the minimum wage in every corporate-owned location. Just one problem: this supposed pay raise is going to do precisely fuck-all for the majority of McDonald's workers.
