    In a free country, they'd be able to fire her for having stupid hair.

    There must be a lot more to this story, which we may never hear.
    IMO, what is really wrong is the lack of taste of those who frequent The old and decaying arches.

    This world is really screwed up, I have to tell you. Nukes in Iran and North Korea, dollars sold in Russia, and now some poor schlub gets fired because she didn't charge 10 cents more for a converted hamburger.

    Is McDonald's next going to charge for toilet paper by the square? LOL. but seriously, McDonald's should be able to fire someone for any reason at any time. And that would be good news for the fired worker, who should have no trouble getting a better job.

    the court was right to bring justice to the worker. However, we don't really hear a full detail on both sides of the story. The woman could have made a ridiculous scene which resulted in her being fired. It's hard to justify.

    It's ridiculous that McDonalds fired her over something so tiny, but technically she did break the rules, so I suppose they had cause. I'm not sure the court needed to be involved.
    If you build a man a fire, he'll be warm for a day.

    If you set a man on fire, he'll be warm for the rest of his life.
