1 year ago: Never side with the boss against the people who handle your food

November 27, 2012, here on slacktivist: Never side with the boss against the people who handle your food

It’s one thing to ask someone to prepare you a chicken sandwich as an expression of your dislike for gay civil rights. It’s something else entirely to ask people to prepare and deliver you a pizza as an expression of your contempt for the people who prepare and deliver your pizza.

    Something I want to bring up, because I learned a new fact a few days ago.

    Turns out that the father of a guy I know once worked for McDonald’s corporate. The system is set up so the McDonald’s Co takes no risk for a new franchise location. All the risk is taken by the franchise operator and the workers – the franchise operator is told where the location will be, and is told how to run the business.

    Basically, fast food is a huge risk shift from corporate to the people on the bottom. Corporate and the shareholders make money and face no risks, but everybody on the bottom is forced to take the risks.

    All said, a good reason not to eat at franchises.
