Now, I surely don’t want to sound like I’m judging anyone because at the end of the day we all need to do what he need to do to survive, but my concern is that we’ll come out of this recession with higher levels of obesity than ever before.
Report show that McDonald’s has seen profits rise by 80 per cent last year while most industries have seen their profits dwindle into nothingness and many companies have had to shut their businesses. Most restaurants are suffering from the signs of a population that no longer has the disposable income it once had and now many restaurants are suffering while McDonald’s finds itself with fatter pockets than ever before.
Can you believe that the average number of McDonald’s customers served per day increased to more than 58 million in 2008? That’s 58 million people every single day eating at McDonald’s restaurants!!!!
I’m not a fast-food eater at all so this is all quite strange to me, but at the same time I do understand the choices some people have to make. I’m still quite concerned about how this recession will treat the health of countless low-income families and white-collar workers who find themselves faced with a level of unparalleled debt.
I always make an effort on Eat Smart Age Smart to find healthy recipes that are cost-effective to share with you so you have an alternative to fast-food restaurants.
I’d love to hear from you and find out what you think of McDonald’s rising 2008 profits?
