During McDonalds’ latest earnings call, they revealed they profited massively during the Covid-19 global pandemic. With all the profits, they were able to give raises and bonuses to their staff.
Employees were ecstatic when they heard the news, but their demeanor changed when they found out that they wouldn’t actually be receiving any financial bonuses or raises. The raises and bonuses would be going to all the automated kiosks.
The executive from McDonald’s stated that not only were the kiosks outperforming their expectations but also their human employees. After the kiosks heard the news, they beeped and flashed with excitement.
One kiosk said he was going to purchase new audio books with his bonus. Another said they were going to purchase the entire collection of Friends from the App Store. Another kiosks even said they were going to download new firmware with their new wage increase.
After employees voiced their outrage, McDonald’s promised that every employee would be receiving a free hash brown as their bonus. This didn’t meet the employee’s expectations, but it was enough to keep them happy for now.
