Folks, I live in Adelaide, the city in question, and saw the "story" in the local Sunday rag. The "third world" bit got up my nose, but it's a typical slur trotted out by the Murdoch tabloid press. I was even going to send a letter to the editor, but hey, argue with an idiot and people can't tell the difference.
Hindley Street is a sewer. It's 24 hour low level sleaze and violence. Mickey D's exploits teenage kids, putting them in a working environment with adult drunks and druggies. Of course no-one's going to tell them to put their rubbish in a bin!I certainly wouldn't.
I would have written to the local press telling them that Maccas in China - a "3rd world" country I guess - verges on squeaky clean, IMHO. However the rest of China, as you well know, drops its rubbish in much the same way that you see in the photo. The difference is that China can pay people a few cents an hour to pick it up.
