    Judge: McDonald's must pay obese employee $17.5K

    A Brazilian court ruled this week that McDonald's must pay a former franchise manager $17,500 because he gained 65 pounds (30 kilograms) while working there for a dozen years.

    The 32-year-old man said he felt forced to sample the food each day to ensure quality standards remained high, because McDonald's hired "mystery clients" to randomly visit restaurants and report on the food, service and cleanliness.

    The man also said the company offered free lunches to employees, adding to his caloric intake while on the job. His identity was not released.

    The ruling was signed Tuesday by Judge Joao Ghisleni Filho in Porto Alegre.

    Ghisleni said McDonald's could appeal the case, and the Brazilian headquarters of the chain said in an e-mailed statement Thursday it was weighing its legal options.

    McDonald's also noted that it offers healthier food choices.

    "The chain offers a large variety of options and balanced menus to cater (to) the daily dietary needs of its employees," the company said in the statement.

    McDonald's headquarters is in Oak Brook, Illinois.

    What......he was "forced" to sample a McFlurry, super size fries, and a quarter pounder and not workout?

    What kind of bullshit reasoning is this?

    No gym for home, work out floor with 30, but is it for 20 like 30 lb when you no lift it to be for men, for 30 lbs instead? or half is 10 for 20 pounds?

    I do volunteer work for Ronald McDonald on their data network out here, it's a GREAT organization.

    He didn't have to eat lunch there for one thing, and he didn't have to finish a whole burger or order of large fries as a sample, chop the burger into fours and have several employees sample it...they have salads and wraps he could eat for lunch for days when he forgot to bring lunch...
    Coarse edged youth, the irish pendants string from their smiles
    not yet plucked as to slacken the seams
    and drag down the features of age,
    no folds or creases from unkempt wear
    eyes of tranquilty, crystalline-beads
    no sign of despair in their hair, nor their hearts
    but oh they have yet to be experienced and that makes aging so very worth it...ML circa2012

    Typical actions of lawyers, judges and courts systems of the USA. They must be following in our footsteps of legal stupidity.
    Weight lifting is like " Mind over Matter". If my body doesn't mind---the weight doesn't matter!!!!!
