Schlosser took the time to research and give information about every aspect that pertains to fast food. He also gave a voice to the workers with leaves an impact on the reader.

The way that this happen is he gives us an insight on what other countries have done about their heath and food safety. To give an example of this is he said, “Throughout the European Union, laws have been passed to guarantee food safety and animal welfare, restrict the use of antibiotics among livestock, ban genetically engineered foods, encourage organic production, and begin the deindustrialization of agriculture (3). When he gives this example this allows us to compare the US’s current state and see that other countries have made attempts to better their food safety issues. In the US food safety issues are not as important to American citizens because a lot of the food is cheap. They trust the regulations that are currently in place because they might not see all the issues that come along with the not having the best protocols.
Yet, I did expect a basic manner that I would expect in fast food restaurants in Korea. In fact, back in Korea two years ago, I saw a Burger King worker getting fired for being rude to a customer.

As soon as we arrived, my father was ready to order. He always eats the same meal of steak fries, ribs covered with a thick, sugary barbecue sauce, and a tub of cole slaw swimming in mayonnaise. Of course, flaky biscuits shiny with grease come with this meal. My father teased me when I choose to eat a few items from the salad bar.
He also mentions the high rates of teenagers working for Fast Food restaurants with little wages and that it distracts them from their education. Schlosser starts a new part of the book where he talks about the food. He starts with the French fries and how it is made by flavor industries and that it puts a lot of potato farmers out of work because of the small number of buyers exerting power over a large number of sellers, a market he describes as “oligopsony”. Schlosser then talks about the IBP revolution, how it changed the meatpacking industry and applying the same labor principle as McDonalds; requiring unskilled workers for low wages. the author then calls meatpacking “the most dangerous job” explaining health issues, injuries and sexual harassment for women.

Schlosser in chapter 2 explains how the fast food industry has made marketing towards little kids an art. They often target them by airing commercials, including their restaurants with play lands and toys so that kids urge parents to take them to a fast food restaurant knowing that kids can get obese or catch diseases from the food. Fast food restaurant’s such as McDonalds has gone as far to say it’s a “Trusted Friend”, making it seem it cares about its customer’s wellbeing.

You probably think oh this is why I think he is one of the most interesting business managers ever but it’s not.
Sondra Simpson’s article “Chipotle Mexican Grill Inc.: Strategy with a Higher Mission or Farmed and Dangerous?” alludes to portraying a controversy involving the popular Mexican fast food chain Chipotle and the agricultural industry, but it reads more as a testament to the restaurant’s environmental and marketing achievements. The introductory paragraphs lead us right into a brief explanation of the issue at hand, as well as Chipotle’s intentions and opposition. Simpson hooks her readers with inciting blog titles illustrating the overall feelings of Chipotle’s offended adversaries, such as, “Boycott Chipotle: My Farm is Not Dangerous” and “Chipotle Unnecessarily Tears Down Agriculture to Build a Brand” (qtd by Simpson p 38). These blog posts describe the agricultural industry’s reaction to Chipotle’s latest attempt at spreading their corporate message through a series of webisodes titled “Farmed and Dangerous.”
For CEO, Steven Ells, the different components of Chipotle’s business-level strategy are key to the company’s overall success and profitability. In order to be successful in the fast causal, restaurant industry, Chipotle uses a differentiation strategy. According to Strategic Management, this is a “generic business strategy that seeks to create higher value for customers than the value that competitors create, by delivering products to services with unique features while keeping the firm’s cost structure at the same or similar levels” (Rothaermel 167). With this, Chipotle serves unique meals created using high-quality raw ingredients. Its commitment to serve “food with integrity” has changed the way people think about and eat fast food.
