Comment Re:McDonald's menu has become more diverse (Score 3, Interesting) 260

In accordance with Brazilian law, employers have to provide a “healthy and varied” lunch for their workers. This is commonly accomplished through distribution of meal tickets that can be redeemed at restaurants and grocery stores, giving employees the optionof bringing their own lunch or eating out. Last year a state labor court in Pernambuco ordered the company to pay $15 million in damages to employees who were not allowed to bring their own lunch to work and were obligated to eat McDonald’s. In São Paulo a pregnant employee who was ordered by her doctor to stop eating McDonald’s food filed charges when her employer refused to cooperate.
