McDonalds, as we all know, is the world’s largest chain of fast food. It also holds a place as one of the largest employers; with the majority being young adults, who are most likely high school and college students. Throughout high school we are supposed to be getting prepared for the real world and advance our education to do so.

Managers only care about themselves and their problems. Once you ask a favor from them, they quickly ask why and when it comes to them...
