Huffington Post reports that a McDonald’s employee in Wales was fired for putting too many sprinkles on an ice cream dessert.  She was an experienced worker with good evaluations.  She sued and settled with McDonald’s for £3,000 (about $5,000).  The moral of the story is to fight back.  Workers in Wisconsin and Michigan may not win today, but they will if they keep fighting – as teachers did in Chicago, and as did a worker who was fired for using too may sprinkles.  The Staple Singers said it best:  “Respect yourself.”
