   ?4, McDonald's fast food culture
In 1948, the American couple Richard and Maurice McDonald in San Bernardino,
California, opened the first McDonald's roadside restaurant. In order to
attract new highway between California who came to dinner, they put up the roof in a
restaurant, a high-profile McDonald's golden arch of neon signs.
Restaurant changed the way past the traditional meal, the sale of food such as
hamburgers, fried food and even milkshakes and soda water beverages, all sold by
Paper Packaging Industry, due to the sale of food easy to carry, those drivers who do
not pass away dining car will be able to solve the problem, so welcomed by customers.
In addition, the restaurant also features a simple, repetitive assembly-line method to
make food. Thus, in the light industrial and commercial kitchen line, based on a new
type of fast food was born. It is accompanied by the emergence of a new way of life
also will spread to all over the country, and even then affect the entire world.
The United States recently published "Fast Food Nation" author

our eating habits play a significant role, but also our economic, cultural and traditional
values people exerts an enormous impact. "Currently, the United States

hamburgers a week and four fried foods. According to statistics, 30 years ago,
Americans spent on fast food each year the cost of 60 billion, by 2000, this
consumption has reached 110 billion U.S. dollars higher, much higher than Americans
spent on university education, home computer or the cost of acquisition of new motor
The reason why the success of McDonald's, first sold food can have
uniform standards and quality, it is used licensing method, each branch of the
standardization management, and the system still in use; addition, labor costs low, and
always maintain lower price is another major factor in its success. Shiluosier said:
"McDonald's has opened up a new way to wage labor, then
part-time workers, low pay and do not provide insurance." Now, in the
United States engaged in the fast food industry employees are highly mobile, because
of them are temporary working group, therefore, resign or be fired very common, and
fast-food company was able to get a lot of subsidies from the federal government, this
is for the poverty they created many employment opportunities for staff incentives.
By Shiluosier words, this is "American taxpayers are giving this high
turnover industry grants."

where people passing by saw that the past can be seen only in television, golden
double arch sign, since then, Chinese children on holidays and birthdays in addition of
a place, that is from this point on, the Chinese people really began to experience the
West as represented by McDonald's fast food culture.
