Fast food jobs are fast becoming a hot commodity as the job market narrows their qualifications with standards that include more experience, education, and a high credit score.  But, the fast food industry still doesn’t provide an opportunity for anyone who wants to feed their family.

Monday, protesters took to the streets in front of major fast food chains including McDonald’s, Wendy’s, Burger King, KFC, and Taco Bell, in an effort to bring attention to the wages that do not meet the demand of the new fast food employee.  Workers in Detroit, Flint, St. Louis, Kansas City, Milwaukee, New York City, are all seeking to have their wages raised and prevent abusive labor practices that the restaurants have taken advantage of for years.

Dearborn, Michigan, McDonald’s decides to cut the halal foods from their menu after a $700,000 settlement was ordered due to fake halal foods being sold at the location.

McDonald’s signs read “99 billion served”.  Some say “billions and billions served”.  Which shows that they do their best to serve EVERYBODY!

But now they will no longer offer halal–the slaugter and/or preparation of animals and meat in the manner prescribed by Islamic law–foods at the Dearborn, Michigan, location; which is one of only two in the country that offer halal food on their menu, according to MSNBC.

The city of Dearborn is 41 percent Arab American and the decision came down after the franchise had to shell out $700,000 in a settlement to Ahmed Ahmed in April, because he claimed that the location had not always served them halal foods. Continue reading

McDonald’s Hoax That Charges Black Patrons More Causes Firestorm

What is going on over at McDonald’s when they can’t escape public relation nightmares.  It seems that either the violence that has erupted in restaurants throughout the chain is caused by some secret chemical component in their food or McDonald’s owns way too many restaurants in the lawsuit age.  The super chain of fast food is turning out to be a drama magnet for every offense imaginable.

Now, they are faced with major scrutiny over a sign posted on Twitter that read: “PLEASE NOTE: As an insurance measure due in part to a recent string of robberies, African American customers are now required to pay an additional fee of $1.50 per transaction.”  Continue reading
