Not Lovin' It: McDonald's Workers Are Not Crazy About All Day Breakfast

Some McDonald's employees in Australia are not happy about the all-day breakfast option.

People may be happy with the fact that fast food chain McDonald's has an all-day breakfast menu, but the people behind the counter are none too pleased with the new option.

According to Mashable, the breakfast options, which include McGriddles, hash browns and bacon, egg & cheese biscuits, implement different ingredients, equipment and creation processes than that of McDoubles and fries. A post on Reddit Australia details the annoying process behind going back and forth between breakfast options and other items on the menu.

"The egg cooker took up most of the space in the deli and the muffin toasters took up the space used by the bun stands," the original post read. "On top of that, having to clean the grill and change the settings every time you switched between 10:1/4:1 and sausage meat would be a nightmare and would take up way too much time unless you had a much higher buffer of cooked meat than you should."

No additional hours are given to complete the tasks of processing the food and cleaning up the area after making the food. Plus, there is less work space since the breakfast equipment must always be out and ready to use.

One poster, who says they have worked at McDonald's for six years, said that the transition to all-day breakfast wasn't all too bad, while many other workers said it hasn't been a walk in the park.

"I wish maccas would just go back to cheap and simple stuff," wrote one poster. "Always changing the menu and trying to be "a little bit fancy" just means it's harder to make sure there are trained people in the kitchen. Turnover for the past few years has been crazy because who the f**k wants to work for sh*t pay and then expect to pull miracles out of their a** and still get shouted at."

Black Trans Woman Bee Love Slater Found Burned Alive In Florida

Over the weekend, the body of Bee Love Slater, a 23-year-old transgender woman was found burned beyond recognition inside a car. According to reports, Slater is the 18th trans woman to be killed this year.

Hendry County investigators said as of now the investigation into Slater's death is ongoing. They cannot title it a hate crime until a clear motive has been established, but Slater's best friend, Kenard Wade thinks the vicious manner of her death is a clear sign.

"She had a really, really good heart," Wade told CBS Fort Myers affiliate Wink. "She would never harm anyone, never put anyone in harm's way. How could someone go to that extreme to get rid of her?"

Wade continued and said Slater received several death threats because she's trans and expressed a desire to leave the area for safety reasons.

Slater's death falls in line with an on-going trend of violence against trans women, particularly black trans women. The Human Rights Campaign states 18 trans women have been murdered in 2019, while 26 members of the trans community were killed in 2018 and 29 trans deaths were recorded in 2017.

CBS News reports that the week of Slater's death, Bailey Reeves, 17 transgender teen was shot and killed in Baltimore on Labor Day.

T.I. Grills Candace Owens On Trump's 'MAGA' Slogan At The Revolt Summit

T.I. had one pressing question for Candace Owens during the 2019 Revolt summit that Owens couldn't quite answer. The two-day conference held in Atlanta brought together music executives, activists, and entertainers to discuss hip-hop, it's power, the current climate of the genre and to network. However, with the 2020 presidential elections nearing politics were also a hot topic.

For Saturday's (Sept. 14) Hip Hop and Politics panel hosted by Jeff Johnson, T.I. asked the conservative commentator to explain Donald Trump's campaign slogan. "When you say Make America Great Again, which period are we talking about?" Tip questioned. "[Is it] the period when women couldn't vote? The period when we were hanging from trees? The crack era? Which period in America are you trying to make great again."

The 30-year-old Connecticut native said: "I actually think that I would totally rock a hat right now that says Make Black America Great Again," which prompted T.I. to interject and restate the original question.

"Which period was America great that we're trying to replicate? Which era was it? Tell me." T.I. questioned. With an excited audience, Owens' attempt to explain Trump's slogan didn't go so well.
