McDonalds and Republicans are both healthy choices for America, they just go together.

The election outcome isn't going to affect the plans to bring back the McRib, is it?

I would refer to the other thread where I said it's the same thing when union membership is a condition of employment, but I waited until you brought it up here.

BTW this was done by a franchise owner not McDonalds itself. Indeed I'm sure corporate has some choice words for the owner.

Democrats eat hamburgers, too.

And probably a bunch of other problems involving lawyers and stuff, but that's probably the big one.

The Arugula Dijon burger never really made it big at McDonalds for some reason.

If I vote Republican can I have a chocolate shake? My braces hurt and I'm hungry. Throw in a soft cheeseburger and I'll vote twice.

8ace: Why?

Corporate is not going to approve of a franchise owner using employee paychecks as political platforms. Such things are usually explicitly forbidden.

Actually a lot of stockholders are biatching because they don't want their money to be spent promoting any political party. They deem it a waste or profits.

So this sort of thing will piss people off.

Exactly. It's also extremely illegal. I wouldn't be surprised if this guy loses his franchise license.

"This is an outrageous attack on one of the most fundamental rights our citizens enjoy - the right to vote for the candidate of his/her choice without economic fear or threat."

yes, that economic fear and threat can only be made by the politicians running for office.

Linoleum_Blownapart: McDonald's Sales Rise in Economic Downturn

Exactly what I was thinking. If consumers have more disposable income, they go to real restaurants.

Their sales rise almost every year. Part of this rise was their new coffee drinks.

I know I would be pissed of one of my franchise owners were doing something illegal. Makes me look bad and might possibly get me in trouble too.

You're saying I can get a toy for voting Republican? Because I'm all for sending this country down the shiatter for an action figure.

Yeh, it was my intention to get you to vote a certain way. Nice try, slick.

The biggest difference between a Union doing this and an employer doing this is that the leadership of a union is elected. If someone disagrees with a Union's political leanings, they can challenge the leadership in an election. If the Franchisee of this restaurant stands against Joe the fry cook for leadership of the restaurant, maybe that argument would make a damn bit of sense.

I worked for McD's for a year in high school. It was humbling.

That being said this is the same company where if you take the rulebook as literal, you can get fired for being robbed at gunpoint three times in under a year. For real, it used to be that if you were robbed, you'd get written up. If you get written up three times in X time, you get fired.

/pointed that out to a manager
//"Well if you get robbed that many times you're probably in on it.."
///"Dude, we are on the highway between Chicago and Detroit. Can we think this out a bit?"

Even implying you're leveraging someone's pay or benefits based on their support of your candidate is most definitely illegal. Political affiliation is a protected status.

except there is absolutely no way for the guy to know who they voted for unless the employees tell them
