I think a lot of this is class snobbery and plain old ignorance. When you compare what McDonald's
is like: reasonably ethically sourced food and decent training and working conditions for staff, compared to many of these tatty fried chicken places: god knows where it came from chicken and £1/hour wages with a matress in the back to sleep on
for the staff, I know which lot I would rather have a go at.
You can't blame McDonald's
for people being fat: it's up to you what you put into your mouth, and everything is ok in moderation. It's not the type of food that makes you fat; it's eating too much of it.
