Mcdonalds must pay former manager who became obese!?

McDonalds has undergone much criticism over the years largely due to its stature as one of the richest companies in the world selling unhealthy fast food. About 6 months ago, they had been accused of unfairly attracting children to “happy meals” by use of toys. However recently, according to CBC news, a former franchise manager of McDonalds has demanded 17,500 dollars because he became obese while on job. The 32 years old worked about 12 years and gained roughly 65 pounds during that time. He stated that he felt “forced to sample the food each day to ensure quality standards remained high because McDonald’s hired “mystery clients” to randomly visit restaurants and report on the food, service and cleanliness.” Although this may seem like a choice he made himself, can McDonalds really afford this kind of public attraction? They have gone through enough criticism to date and are already well known for high calorie, unhealthy products. McDonalds is trying to build a reputation and image as a provider of healthier alternative meals and the last thing they need is another incident reiterating their unhealthy image.
