Summary:
Annotation

Some say the adventurous days of grueling and dangerous scientific exploration are long gone, but Reiter (sociology, Brock U.) undertook a 10-month trek--without pay!--into the uncharted wilds of a Burger King kitchen to bring us first-hand accounts of the strange and marvellous customs of the natives. The illustrations are hilarious. Annotation(c) 2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com).

Annotation

"Making Fast Food is a long overdue book designed to uncover the brutal truths about the have-a-nice-day industry of burgers and French fries ... Reiter masterfully documents, analyses and attacks the low pay and appalling working conditions of the fast food labour force". Emily Caston, City Limits.  Read more...
