A Misguided Big Mac Attack

Big Mac Attack

Big Mac AttackBy Raynard Jackson

Two weeks ago, I was sent a video of a Hispanic woman interrupting a speech by Jeff Stratton, president of McDonald’s USA.

He was giving a speech at the Union League Club of Chicago.

Nancy Salgado, the Hispanic woman in question, became Exhibit A for what’s gone wrong in today’s workforce: rudeness and what the Bible calls slothfulness.

My two kids are struggling because you can’t raise our minimum wage. I don’t believe that’s fair. What do you have to say?”

If I had been in the audience, I would have gladly answered for Stratton.
