Sounds like McDonalds needs to change a few things. May we suggest starting with $15 And A Union?

McDonald’s profits drop 30 percent in third quarter as US sales fall

~
CHICAGO — McDonald’s Corp., the world’s largest restaurant chain, said third-quarter profit fell 30 percent as U.S. sales slumped for the fourth straight quarter..

Net income dropped to $1.07 billion, or $1.09 a share, from $1.52 billion, or $1.52, a year earlier, the Oak Brook, Illinois-based company said in a statement Tuesday.
McDonald’s has been struggling to draw American diners as rivals offer deals and introduce new items. The company also has lost customers by boosting prices on burgers to make up for rising labor and ingredient costs. Sales at McDonald’s U.S. stores open at least 13 months fell 3.3 percent in the third quarter, trailing the 2.9 percent decline estimated by analysts in a Consensus Metrix survey.
