Wow! There’s a McDonald’s CSR Blog

| Friday February 24th, 2006 | 6 Comments

mclogo.jpgMcDonalds is a company that’s almost as demonized as Wal Mart, sometimes for silly reasons, sometimes for legitimate ones. Anyway, a few years ago McDonalds published a fake weblog about a french fry that looked like Abraham Lincoln. It was a major flop (read about it here) and bloggers around the world derided the company as badly out of touch.
Now, they seem to have made ammends with the blogging phenomenon and offered what appears to be a pretty transparent “CSR Blog” on which you are free to comment away. Check it out here.

    It’s nice to see a site like this, but in reality, it really does not allow for comments. Since all comments must be approved, you can bet there will be no mention of when/where they are being irresponsible. For instance read about the Florida Farm workers Fair Food fight against McDonalds (and the victory against Taco Bell) at http://www.ciw-online.org

    ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS ON THE LOOSE AT MCDONALDS
    Recently I made a valid complaint to McDonalds customer services dept. about McDonalds poor standards at thier Harben Parade branch at Swiss Cottage, London NW3. The complaint concerned slow service, abrasive attitudes, and matters about unacceptable hygeine standards.
    The complaint was passed on to the store by customer services, following which the store’s manager, Bakry, promptly banned me from the store. He did not deny that my complaint was valid, but was told that I was banned simply becauseI I had made the complaint in the first place. Their management team consists entirely of immigrants, having come here on dodgy visas and the like, and all of which in favour of my ban, which shows how much we are now under the control of illegal immigrants.
    Perhaps this is consistent with McDonalds training practices. It would appear that you have to accept their adverse practices without question or suffer the consequences, as I myself did.
