A new survey asked people whether their job makes the world a better place or a worse place. And of the people who said "I make the world a worse place" . . . 42.3% were FAST FOOD WORKERS. Bartenders were second, attorneys were third, fashion designers were fourth, and investment banking associates were fifth.
Whenever I go to McDonald's, I get the sense that the employees HATE me . . . and all the other customers too. But I didn't realize they also hated THEMSELVES.
--A new survey asked more than 30,000 workers in the U.S. if their job makes the world a better place or a worse place. Only about 1% of the people surveyed said they make the world a worse place. So who made up that 1%?
--Fast food workers were, BY FAR, the most likely to say they make the world a worse place." 42.3% of people who say they're making the world worse are in fast food.
--The next closest was bartenders . . . at 5.8%. Senior attorneys were third, fashion designers were fourth, and investment banking associates were fifth.
--The survey was also sorted by industry, not just by specific job. And when they did it that way, the fast food industry came in as fourth-most likely to say they're making the world a worse place.
--The tobacco industry came in first, gambling was second, and gas stations came in third. Fast food was fourth, and liquor distributors were fifth.
