Should McDonald's go out of business

Drago31
SJM

I believe that McDonald should go out of business! I have 3 reasons why: 1. Aggressive targeting of kids through McDonald's toys and marketing 2. Between 1995 and 2000, McDonald's monopoly sweepstakes was rigged, making it nigh impossible to win prizes. 3. McDonald's dismal wages contribute to a poverty rate of 16.7% among United States fast food workers. EVIDENCE: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UocgrWQhNOM Are you still lovin' it?...

Doctors should be paid more than footballers.

hasnat614

Yes they should. Doctors save lives. Save lives. How much can you buy life for? Footballers entertain people for money and get paid more than doctors. Why is this? They are famous. I'm a football fan, but don't you think its a little bit unfair? Thousands of people die everyday, millions of tears are shed everyday but this number could decrease with doctors. If we pay them more they will work more! More lives saved already. Nobody cries when their football team looses. That's because footba...

child labour should be made legal in under developed countries.

xzfkx
GarrettPerry

To begin with, child labour has its own pros and cons. It may be beneficial for some and may not be so beneficial for others, but when it comes to under developed countries, in most cases child labour is considered essential. Child labour is a major source of income in households that aren't well off, and making it illegal would mean taking away a source of income, therefore must not be banned....
