Employees Shown Favoritism at McDonald’s

Nov 25, 2016

Dear Cathy:

I'm a manager at a McDonald's. My general manager and the owner changed my schedule to 3:00-11:00 p.m. I told them I can't do this shift because I have kids and they said okay but they both show a lot of favoritism, especially when it comes to the general manager’s sister, who got my old schedule. She has the power to say she doesn’t want a certain shift. Is there anything that I can do about this? Unfair Workplace, New York

Dear Unfair Workplace:

It’s unfortunate but most workplaces today are polluted with nepotism, cronyism and favoritism. These unfair workplace policies has been happening for years and companies like McDonald’s especially are polluted with these types of practices.

You can do two things here. Go along to get along and just get babysitters and work the other shift or file an unfair workplace practice complaint.

If you file a complaint, all they will do is dig their heels in and you will probably end up terminated, so again, you have very little options here. There is no way that you can force these people to do the right thing in any workplace today.

Remember that most laws in most workplaces were written by men over 20 years ago and they could care less that you have children.

Alarming Workplace Statistics include:

·        Over 85% of workers are unhappy with their jobs.
·        Over 85% of workers are one (1) paycheck away from being homeless.
·        The goal of abusive managers is to “break the spirit” of good hard-working, honest employees.
·        Because of the weak economy -- nepotism, favoritism and cronyism have polluted MOST workplaces in America.

If you would like to stay in the workplace in the future then you need to learn your rights by reading my 3 workplace books “The Workplace Survival Guide: How To Fight Discrimination, Whistleblowing and the Workers’ Compensation System” and “Discrimination 101: The Complete Guide To Recognizing and Surviving Discrimination in the Workplace (Volume 1) and (Volume 2)." These 3 books are available as e-books only at

I would also suggest you start investigating the possibility of starting your own business on the side. If you have a youth ages 12 or above, then they can start a business and you can manage them.
