A judge in Brazil ruled today that a former McDonald’s employee must be paid $17,500 by the burger business since it fattened him up by sixty-five pounds over twelve years.
The 32-year-old man said he felt forced to sample the food each day to ensure quality standards remained high, because McDonald's hired "mystery clients" to randomly visit restaurants and report on the food, service and cleanliness. The man also said the company offered free lunches to employees, adding to his caloric intake while on the job. - AP
