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?...

Firstly, the way the data is obtained is extremely flawed. An average then used to compare specific jobs around the world, which doesn't take into account occupation, hours worked, position, a...
