McDonald’s Is Sending a Powerful Message

The fact that McDonald’s has decided to phase out serving antibiotic raised chickens is a big step. This has giant implications for the individuals who work in the meat industry. The reason why this is such a big step is because four-fifths of the antibiotics that are consumed in that the United States of America are used by the livestock industry.

This move shows that McDonald’s really does appreciate the fact that antibiotics are precious. Marc Sparks says this is something that is of special importance right now since there is so much concern about antibiotic resistance not only United States, but around the world. More and more infections are becoming antibiotic resistant. Scientists have made many predictions concerning how things will be in just a few years if new antibiotics are not created. They have predicted that around 20 million people will be killed by the year 2050 because of antibiotic failure. Despite the fact that scientists are saying this and many health professionals are concerned about this idea, the government seems to have no problem with allowing livestock producers to pump their animals full of antibiotics. The reason why they do this is to encourage growth in the animals.

Many individuals are extremely pleased with McDonald’s decision to stop using chickens that have been raised on antibiotics. Many feel that this sends a powerful message all around the world, especially since McDonald’s serves around 60 million people every single day.

Delaware Ohio Branch of Dickey’s Barbecue Pit Is Closed Once Again!

What’s a person got to do to get a decent rack of ribs these days? In Delaware, Ohio people will have to go someplace besides Dickey’s Barbecue Pit. The employees had enough of the management and their demands. Unified as a team, they all left quitting at once. Alexei Beltyukov read that they even posted a sign on the door for all customers to see. Is anyone shocked?

This is a corporately run chain, and perhaps higher management should look into what is going on at this Dickey’s Barbecue Pit location. This story has hit the news as bizarre, but it’s sad too. Because jobs are so few and far between these days, management thinks they can expect more and more from their employees. These employees had enough and the fact that the entire staff quit is profound. The sign they left said they loved their customers, but right beside it was a “help wanted” sign. So despite how much love they had for their customers, they walked out and someone else will take their spots.

They were understaffed and the demands on the staff were too much. So many companies are cutting budgets these days just to make it, but who it really affects is the ones who are still there everyday.
