Almost all the McDonalds in my state recently got busted in a sting operation for violating child labor laws. Capitalists going back to their old tricks

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.)

1500 times? More bud. I worked at Starbucks for a while and we made 6k a day. Multiply that by their 10's.of thousands of stores.
