McDonald's New Uniforms: A Depressing Expression of Our Dystopian Future

On the one hand, the new McDonald's uniforms are super-chic, modernistic and way more fashionable than the old ones.

The fast-food giant recently showed off the new gray uniforms, and people on social media aren't holding back. I think these uniforms look like they could be at any chain or restaurant.

From evil Star Wars employees, to characters out of the Hunger Games, the internet has been blasting the new monochrome uniforms as creepily dystopian.

This is Elizabeth Banks as Effie Trinket in the "Hunger Games", not a new McDonald's employee.

"This major move is another step in the company's commitment to become America's best first job and improve the restaurant experience". Boswell is a former employee of McDonald's who now is a designer to the stars, while Rivas is a designer for Dimensions Corporatewear The new look will debut in April at all 14,000 restaurants.

In an internal survey done by McDonald's, they said more than 70 percent of workers were liking the uniforms.

Chris Pratt says Jurassic World 2 is scarier, darker, unexpected
New cast members include James Cromwell, Ted Levine, Toby Jones, Rafe Spall, Justice Smith and Daniella Pineda. Filming of the sequel is now in the works, with Pratt reprising his role as Velociraptor trainer Owen Grady.

Waraire Boswell introduced denim aprons that can be worn to the neck or folded in half and worn at the waist, depending on the employee's personal style.

From the hat-n'-bib days through the very long Polyester Era: a garish rainbow of questionable color choices.

"Our new collections focus on comfort, fit, functionality and contemporary professionalism, delivering a uniform that crew and managers will feel comfortable to work in and proud to wear".

Forever aspiring to refine and flawless the fast-food experience, McDonald's has increasingly sought to remove the pesky human element, whose erratic idiosyncrasies have long proved a hindrance to the efficient dissemination of hamburgers.

Other comments included, "Is McDonalds in mourning for something?" and "New McDonald's uniforms". Or is this the gang responsible for flipping President Snow and Governor Tarkin's burgers?
