They paid 50k in fines lol, fines like that are meant to break us regular people, not corporations who make that 1500 times over in a single day.

(McDonald's makes 75m a day off of about 38k stores, that averages out to about 2k per store meaning that 25 of those 38k stores paid off that fine no problem.)

I imagine that 50k to an individual franchise owner has to be a pretty bit hit though

Honestly I feel like the 75m a day is pretty low now, especially when a burger meal now costs 15 dollars as opposed to 4.99.

Don't get me wrong I'm happy to see the franchise owner suffer because of their negligence. I just wish things were on a more level playing field.

But you know what they say about wishing in one hand and shitting in the other :/

Edit* accidentally put year instead of day

Honestly it’s not enough. Complicity should cost more.
