    Judge to McDonald’s: Pay $17,500 For Making Your Employee Fat – TIME Healthland

    Remember, this did not happen in the US. Even so, its a crack in the wall.

    What do you think?

    I think your OP here is going to open up a floodgate of unsympathetic, intolerant, rude, nasty comments from folks who never had a weight problem in their life, don't understand what a weight problem is and don't care in the least about those who have them.

    That's what I think.

    I think you have no clue when it comes to "personal responsibility" Now McDonald's will weigh each employee monthly and when they've gained 5 lbs. will have just cause to fire them.

    Hello, George!

    I wondered, if an employee could sue McDonald's for their weight gain, why not a customer? And if weight gain, why not any other health issue associated with their products?

    In my mind, this makes the California woman with burns from spilled coffee case look like peanuts....after all, McDonald's could still sell coffee that was cooler. But without the extreme fat, salt, sugar and preservatives content, how could they sell their food? That's their entire business model.

    I dun give a fuck about rude comments on USMB, George. Yanno me better'n that...I like to throw the raw meat out in front of hungry dogs and see what happens (metaphorically speaking).

    I'm of two minds....the fast food industry has damaged the business of agriculture, the land, the farming communities, the people in cities, etc. It has rendered the palate of the entire planet bland and soulless....in short, it would be no loss to anyone if it disappeared tomorrow.

    But then, it is a legal business and this is hardly the time to be killing jobs. So I can go either way here....I am not sure if I welcome this development or not.

    McDonald's has no responsibility at all here, Willow?
