My Animal Farm

Introduction

Employees all over the world that work for McDonalds are underpaid. They are paid minimum wage. McDonalds wants the best workers, but want to pay them minimum wage. Corporate and Mr. Jones are not willing to up the employees pay. Corporate says restaurant managers, cashiers, janitors, and other employees are ready to quit because of this issue. Some have already quit. Some workers are fine with the minimum wage, but they don’t take pride in what they do. They goof off, run around the restaurant with each other, some even steal the food.

Employees are tired of working for minimum wage. They went on strike, nothing changed, so they dethroned corporate. There are many problems within the McDonalds Corporation, but this is the biggest one. A notion of welfarism came to light between corporate and employees. The themes will be “Humans Will Split into Different Classes… and One Class Will Take Advantage of the other” and “Manipulating Language/Messages Helps Control the Ignorant”. Both of these themes explain the conflicts at McDonalds.

 Themes

 Humans Will Split into Different Classes… and One Class Will Take Advantage Of The Other.

My first theme is “Humans Will Split into Different Classes… and One Class Will Take Advantage of the other”.  It’s been a while since the employees overthrew corporate and Mr. Jones. That caused a split between the workers. They split because of welfarism, and soon one group will take  advantage of the other.

Manipulating Language/Messages Helps Control The Ignorant

My second theme is ”Manipulating Language/Messages Helps Control the Ignorant.” This theme starts off with squealer as one of the co-managers. Squealer eavesdrops into a conversation between Napoleon and another McDonald’s Corporation, which Snowball as joined.
