    Last summer Tanya Harrell was working in McDonald’s in Gretna, Louisiana, when she says a co-worker started making unwanted sexual advances. A colleague she occasionally gave lifts to started touching her inappropriately at work, grabbing her breasts and backside and asking her to touch his penis. “I felt totally exposed, as if I did not have a skin or shell. I felt like I was outside my own body, watching what was happening,” she said in a complaint filed with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). When she complained Harrell said her managers did not take it seriously and suggested...

    • McDonald’s has been serving McGriddles — breakfast sandwiches with two little pancakes for buns — for years, and now the chain is taking its sweet-and-savory morning item to a higher level. Mickey D’s has introduced the French toast McGriddle for a test run at some 200 locations in Minnesota. Not only does this dish innovate by tucking the fillings inside two slices of French toast, it brings bacon and sausage together on the same sandwich. • Speaking of McDonald’s, it seems the Golden Arches has decided its table service and self-ordering kiosks are the way of the future. McDonald’s...

    The number of non-homeless people sleeping in McDonald’s restaurants across Hong Kong in southeast China has increased six-fold over the past five years, a new study has found. The study, organized by Junior Chamber International’s Tai Ping Shan, was conducted in June and discovered that 334 people have slept in a McDonald’s restaurant nightly over the past three months — a six-fold increase from a study conducted in 2013, which showed only 57 people routinely slept in McDonald’s. According to the research, reported by South China Morning Post, 84 of 110 24-hour fast food branches had seen regular overnight sleepers....

    Talk about supersizing it. The bidding war that erupted over a Daily Beast story published July 28 about a decadelong scam involving the McDonald's Monopoly contest has resulted in one of the most lucrative rights deals for a single article, sources with knowledge of the deal tell The Hollywood Reporter. In the end, it was 20th Century Fox and Ben Affleck and Matt Damon's Pearl Street Films' bid of $1 million — a huge sum for an 8,700-word web feature — that beat out other bids from Universal, Netflix and Warner Bros. Affleck has committed to directing the project, with...

    Here are a few things that are effectively legal in San Francisco: drugs, public defecation and shoplifting. And here are some of the things that are banned or will be banned in the City by the Bay. Straws. Fur coats. Bottled water. Eating at work. Vaping liquids. Upholstered furniture. Plastic bags. Pet stores. Electric scooters. Coffee cups and packing peanuts. Tropical fish. The McDonald’s Happy Meal. If you can think of something, San Francisco has already banned it. Or will be banning it soon. North Korea with a tech industry and some leftover Victorian architecture (which it’s banning tour buses...

    A pregnant woman was served a cleaning agent in a cup rather than the latte she ordered from a McDonald's in southern Alberta. Sarah Douglas was taking her son to a baseball tournament on Sunday morning when she went through a drive-thru at the McDonald's restaurant on University Drive W. in Lethbridge and ordered a latte. As she drove onto Highway 3, she took a sip. "I immediately had to put my hazard lights on and pull over and spit it out and rinse my mouth out with ... water," said Douglas, who is more than seven months pregnant with...

    A brutal video of a McDonald’s worker beating up a female customer who apparently “disrespected” her mom surfaced on Thursday. The video begins with the visitor throwing a milkshake at the employee who is angrily marching toward her. The worker grabs the woman, who is wearing just a small black tank top and gray shorts, and starts pounding her head on a table. The worker throws the customer around so brutally that one of her breasts falls out of her top. The larger woman then pummels the milkshake thrower with wild, swinging blows before tossing her onto a cushioned seat.

    Documentary filmmaker Morgan Spurlock first shot to national attention with his 2004 film Super Size Me. He ate nothing but McDonald’s food and chronicled his ill health during that time. Spurlock and his film became a cultural phenomenon. He received the Best Director award at Sundance and was nominated for an Academy award. But what if McDonald’s wasn’t the real problem with his health? Each day during his month-long experiment, he ate all his meals only at McDonald’s, and he ate large servings by any restaurant’s standards. No one forced him. By the experiment’s end, he reported experiencing shakes (as...

    The wife of a Virginia police officer is speaking out about the McDonald’s employee who refused to serve him, but she claims she never wanted the young employee to lose his job. Last week, Officer Scott Naff of the Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries was denied service by a young McDonald’s drive-thru worker, who took one look at Naff in his uniform and stated, “I ain’t serving no cops.” “My husband, of course, was shocked,” said Cathy Naff during an interview on Friday morning’s edition of “Fox and Friends.” “He said, ‘I’m sorry, what did you say?’ And...

    Americans are encouraged to embrace diversity and be culturally sensitive to those who have flouted our laws and invaded our nation. Meanwhile, illegal aliens arriving in America have no such requirement. Instead, trespassing tribes relocate, and when they do, rather than assimilate, they transfer habits and activities indigenous to the countries from whence they migrated. Thus, Americans suffer from illnesses that are easily traceable to third-world bathroom habits (TWBH) and lack of hygiene in the developing world. It's not news that illegals work in restaurants as food-handlers. These restaurant workers migrate from countries where, prior to kneading tortilla dough, post-toilet...

    After McDonald's Corp. announced all-day breakfasts three years ago, it gradually forgot about mornings. Overall sales have weakened in the U.S., market share has shrunk, and McDonald's has identified lost breakfast customers as the main culprit. Now the world's biggest restaurant company plans to fight back with discounts, breakfast catering and a ploy lifted straight from a 1997 "Seinfeld" episode -- selling only the tops of muffins. "We took our eye off the ball on breakfast," Chief Financial Officer Kevin Ozan said at a May investor conference. "With everything else going on, we just lost a little focus on that...

    President Trump would like to see McDonald's come to North Korea. A source told Axios that Trump is in favor of well-known American staples coming to North Korea, including McDonald's, as he seeks to have the rogue nation open up to the world. Such cooperation hinges on a historic meeting Trump has planned for Tuesday in Singapore with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un about denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula. While Trump has fast food friendship on his mind, the feeling may be mutual in North Korea...

    As McDonald's seeks to modernize its business, the company is placing a big bet on mobile and other tech platforms. McDonald's has been systematically adding self-service ordering kiosks and table service to stores as it works to "build a better McDonald's." "What we're finding is when people dwell more, they select more," CEO Steve Easterbrook told CNBC on "Squawk on the Street" on Monday. "There's a little bit of an average check boost."

    It is little more than a footnote in the back-and-forth over the planned North Korea summit — but the rumor of a McDonald’s in Pyongyang is juicier than a three-patty Big Mac. North Korean leader Kim Jong Un may allow a “Western hamburger franchise” into the country as a show of goodwill to the United States, according to an intelligence report described by U.S. officials to NBC. That follows remarks by South Korean adviser Chung-in Moon in late April, who said that North Korea might be interested in welcoming a McDonald’s as tensions ease. Compared to the threat of nuclear...

    Two South Florida McDonald's customers think the fast-food giant is being awfully cheesy with how it charges customers for a signature item that has been on its menu since 1975. According to a class-action lawsuit filed in Fort Lauderdale federal court on May 8, Cynthia Kissner, of Broward County, and Leonard Werner, of Miami-Dade, say they have had to pay for cheese they don't want on their Quarter Pounder sandwiches. The suit asks for at least $5 million. It comes down to this: On the menu, a hamburger at Micky D's is cheaper than a cheeseburger. According to the lawsuit,...

    A Fond du Lac man who holds the world record for "Most Big Macs Consumed" ate his 30,000th Big Mac on Friday. Don Gorske said he ate his first Big Mac on May 17, 1972, and has enjoyed, on average, two of the sandwiches nearly every day since. “I take that first bite, it was the best thing I had ever tasted in my life,” reads a pamphlet from Gorske that chronicles his hamburger habit. An entry titled “Summer of 1972” reads, “When I’m not at work, or going to McDonalds [sic], I’m at County Stadium, eating a Big Mac...
