Which Is Worse: Eating at McDonald's or Working There?
McDonald’s was first opened by brothers Dick and Mac McDonald in 1940, and since then, the restaurant eclipsed into a staple for fast food across the globe. As a matter of fact, McDonald’s is the most popular fast food chain that serves tasty (but rather unhealthy) quick foods and beverages such as french fries, hamburgers, and milkshakes. In addition to eating there, McDonald’s is also a common restaurant to work at the place. People enjoy working as cashiers, cooks, or supervisors, while dealing with such a pleasant aroma from foods being cooked. While it never hurts to enjoy a sporadic meal that consists of a Big Mac, large fries, and a soft drink, working at McDonald’s fares better because it allows people to support themselves economically and provide a sense of independence.
Eating at McD's
For people who eat out, they often choose McDonald’s because they enjoy the foods cooked from the friendly business. The restaurant’s polite atmosphere is not just due to promotions of Happy Meal toys and Ronald McDonald; overall, it has a kind service. Still, people need to be aware of the foods that are served at McDonald’s. Many products are fried in oil, such as french fries and chicken nuggets. If customers consume those foods five days a week for lunch, they increase cholesterol and obesity. Ordering a salad or asking workers to bake the fries are some ways in making a dinner trip to McDonald’s more healthier.
Working hard for the money
People who work at McDonald’s are there for a reason. They work to earn money, grow independence, and gain self-esteem. Teenagers often desire to work at McDonald’s. They want to earn their paychecks so they can use them for education, clothes, or entertainment. McDonald’s should open doors for anyone who is old enough to work, and wishes to develop interaction with fellow workers while earning money. It doesn’t make any difference who that person is. Whether it’s a 16-year-old student paying for college, or an unemployed father needing money to support his family, employment at McDonald’s is all about self support.
McDonald’s continues to be the centerpiece for fast food in many countries. Ordering food from the restaurant can make a person happy, but that person needs to be careful of the food’s contents. And working at McDonald’s is worth more than a Happy Meal; it’s an accomplishment that spreads cheer for people, especially those who need to put food on their tables.
