Analysis Of Working At Mcdonald's By Amitai

Decent Essays
In the article Working at McDonald's, author Amitai Etzioni expresses a strong viewpoint as to why working at McDonald's, and other establishments such as McDonald's is in fact hindering our youth more than benefiting them. He says that jobs such as these provide our youth with little to no fundamental skills that will propel them into a promising future, limits the room for initiative and creativity and also distracts them from their studies. He supports his claims with numerous studies and statistics, mostly from the early to mid 80's. My first impression from this article was that it was very one sided, and in many cases Etzioni's claims could be proven false. He seemed to start on a specific issue and then ended up a tad all over the place.
