Plus, he mentions the work styles of fast-food chains including the environment of workplace, the forms of works, and of course, payment. Then he cites a fact that say students who have part-time jobs tend not to get high quality jobs after they graduate: “many who begins as part-time employees in fast-food chains drop out of high school and are gobbled up in the world of low-skill jobs.” He also gives some studies that were made in a couple decades ago to support his thought. In addition, the author claims that these jobs are fit to lower-class and non-academic class more than higher class and middle class due to providing employees income, work, and some training without high-educated requirement. It somehow sustain its disadvantaged status. Furthermore, he also says that number of working hours affected badly to school performance of teenagers since they do not have enough time to do homework
The reality of the situation is that both mother and father are busy to earn a living from day to night, while their children have to eat out since no one at home has time to cook a fresh meal. Just as all family members have their own hectic schedules, so too do they let their children have a quick breakfast at McDonald’s and a fattening dinner at Burger King. The best way to deal with the regrettable situation at hand is to impose regulations controlling
He isn’t speaking about the food affecting children’s health, however. His statement goes more in depth than that. He goes more into an educational perspective. It refers to the 2/3 of America’s high school juniors and seniors who hold a part-time paying job in places such as McDonalds and how it affects their self-growth, and most importantly, their education. He explains how at first glance, a teen job is one of the few ways to bring up a self-reliant adult.
For many, English is not their primary language. Barry is ServSafe® certified and tries his best to keep up with food safety issues in the kitchen but he admits it’s not easy. Employees receive “on the job training” about food safety basics (for example, appropriate hygiene and hand washing, time/temperature, and cleaning and sanitizing). But with high turnover of employees, training is often rushed and some new employees are put right into the job without training if it is a busy day. Eventually, most employees get some kind of food safety training.
As such, the quality of education that they receive is quite poor and degrading instead of building. Without quality education, these teenagers do not proceed further in their career ladder. By making these low paying jobs take precedence over their education, the teenagers end up paying a high price when they are grown- ups. Etzioni provides explicit evidence showing that most of these teenagers end up as school dropouts and the only place they can work in is the same fast food restaurants that they worked in when they were teenagers. Basically, his argument is that fast food industries such as McDonalds offer a wide field of employment for teenagers which is beneficial as it makes them self responsible.
McDonald’s has realized the importance of getting their food to the public fast, with that being said this organization has accumulated 1.8 million employees. This is where some of the ethical issues come in to play as a global organization. Child labor laws and the limit of hours that people are able to work vary greatly from country to country. While McDonald’s wants to profit from their service to the public, they do not want to profit at the suffering of their employees working too much or in horrible conditions. In America we have child labor laws in place to ensure that employees under the age of 17 years old are not working too many hours in a row or in an overall week.

Among these numbers a majority of those in need are children. As I sit in on the school board meetings as a student representative, I know that about ½ of the kids that attend Prairie Farm schools are on the free or reduced lunch program. Knowing this, our school implemented a program where if a family, or student, wants the school will send them home with a backpack full of food that fulfill the food groups, such as bread, and canned veggies and fruit. By hosting extracurricular food drives, I hope the students that are lucky enough to not worry about where their dinner is going to come from feel a sense of community pride by bringing in food or by helping stock
Both students joined the supermarket two years ago, and, given their similar situations, became friends quickly. Although Stephanie seems to enjoy her job, arriving and leaving work each day with a smile on her face, Alex often grumbles and complains about his work. Much of the time, Alex complains about his boss, Dan, who oversees the produce department. Stephanie works for Jonathan, a 10-year veteran who everyone generally admires for his friendly demeanor and relaxed management style. Most employees want to work for Jonathan, as he often assigns his employees different duties each week so workers don’t get bored.
