It's McDonald's. Get over yourself.

"Yes, when we first started working with McDonald's we got a lot of comments and eyebrows were raised," but he added that he was impressed by the company's environmental credentials, the use of only free range eggs, and its use of chip fat oil to power its lorries.

It's McDonald's, and you're worried about the uniforms being too American?

/PS - Mad Men is set in the US. Just so you know.

Why do they have a different uniform for men and women? Not just a pants (or what do they call them, trousers?) vs skirts thing, but a whole different color. Fark your gender binary.

You have to wear a tie to work at McDonalds now? The f*ck is this sh*t?

It's weird, but now that you mention it, I guess most people are either men or women.

They also have different colors for managers, but I don't see anybody crying about classism.

Will they start putting bourbon and cigarettes in the Happy Meals?

Ah yes... Poorly paid McD's workers now having to wear ill-fitting costumes to work... That should go over well.

can't stand silly corporate skirt policies for women. It's a fast food job where lifting, bending over, and walking fast are required.

Knee length skirts, especially pencil skirts, prevent a few of those.

I'm not sure how practical a knee-tapered skirt is for scrubbing the underside of a chip fryer. You'd have to hike the dress up to your waist.

There's going to be vagina everywhere.

They forgot too mention the reclamation of grassland for grazing in Brazil from what used to be useless rainforest.

The language called English for a reason...

The Middle French word bescuit is derived from the Latin words bis (twice) and coquere, coctus (to cook, cooked), and, hence, means "twice-cooked".[1] This is because biscuits were originally cooked in a twofold process: first baked, and then dried out in a slow oven.[2]

This term was then adapted into English in the 14th century during the Middle Ages, in the Middle English word bisquite, to represent a hard, twice-baked product.

Way to really stick it to us with your American inspired uniforms in an American restaurant because America is so bad until we give you money.

I think there needs to be some unnecessary "u's" in there.

Seems like it could just figure out what song was playing and just look up the details about the samples on their website. It would certainly take less battery life.
 
2012-06-22 07:27:26 AM
They look ok on the models, but will probably not so much on the average McD's employee.

Also apparently covering their head so they don't get hair in the customers' food is an American thing. Can't have that.

This is the second time in as many weeks. Senility is finally rearing its ugly head.

I'm embarrassed for this. Kind of like those tweekers dressed as the statue of liberty during tax time.

Pencil skirts? On a McDonald's employee? Better make that a Jumbo Sharpie skirt, McGenius.

Those uniforms look like they were designed by the designers for Chess King.

As a female who worked fast food in my younger years, my first thought is that pencil skirts are impractical for fast food and look terrible on overweight women.

I approve of tiny miniskirted uniforms for females, but not exactly for the same reasons.

Thinly veiled PR release is thinly veiled.

Also, poorly written. I'm excited to go see my local crew wearing "green dark green trousers or skits."

Wait until someone gets his tie caught in the burger conveyor and has his head pulled slowly down into the boiling oil.

Came here to say that these will slowly and quietly disappear after about two weeks, when Mickey D's realizes that fashion designers don't make clothes that are good for anything except looking pretty. (And this one didn't even do a half-way decent job of that.)

Sorry for the run-on sentence. I'm hungover.

It's also a weird comparisson from a brit, as we don't have petrol pump attendants over here.
