McDonald’s Employee Fired For Buying Firefighers Breakfast

McDonalds1(PCM) Twenty-three year old former morning manager of the McDonald’s store in Olean, NY, Heather Levia, has been fired from her position after she purchased breakfast for a group of firefighters from her community.

Levia was aware that the particular group of firefighters had been battling a blaze in sub-zero temperatures overnight and as a way to show her appreciation for their efforts, she took $83 of her own money, not the stores, and decided to buy them breakfast which consisted of 25 breakfast sandwiches and hash browns.

McDonalds To Post Calories For ALL ITEMS on Drive Thru, Menu Boards

(PCM) McDonald’s has revealed a shocking new addition coming to all menu boards and drive-thru menus across the country: calorie counts. The move to help health-conscious customers, as well as inform the general public (who are often uniformed or just generally in denial about what they are consuming), comes as a bit of a surprise to the industry, but a hopeful surprise, nonetheless.

Working at McDonald's Never Looked So Good

Fast food will never be the same. Wayne Hemingway, of HemingwayDesign and the award-winning street style label Red or Dead, has taken McDonald’s under his wing, giving the fast-food chain an impressive makeover and dressing employees to the ‘McDonald’s nines’.

So, say goodbye to the mustard yellow monotone uniforms, and get ready for a “Mad Men” inspired design fit for a “casually elegant Italian bistro:” Adidas-style zipper jackets, button-top pencil skirts, and plaid blouses…and no more baseball hats.
