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.

" Aggressive targeting of kids through McDonald's toys and marketing" - Doesn't matter if they're aggressively targeting children if it's not bad, therefore this point to be considered the premise that mcdonalds is bad has to be established.

"Between 1995 and 2000, McDonald's monopoly sweepstakes was rigged, making it nigh impossible to win prizes."- This is a sign of intelligence which people should be promoting., therefore mcdonalds is teaching people to be smarter in order to make profits.

"McDonald's dismal wages contribute to a poverty rate of 16.7% among United States fast food workers."- It's better than them going out of business and giving no money.
