    Cushman VS. TUC

    In August of 1994, an unidentified bill collector informed Cushman that TUC was publishing a consumer credit report indicating that she was delinquent on payments to these three credit grantors. Cushman notified TUC that she had not applied for or used the three credit cards in question, and suggested that a third party had fraudulently applied for and obtained the cards. In response, a TUC clerk called Amex and Chase to inquire whether the verifying information (such as Cushman's name, social security number, and address) in Amex's and Chase's records matched the information in the TUC report. The TUC clerk also asked if Cushman had opened a fraud investigation with the credit grantors. Because the information matched, and because Cushman had not opened a fraud investigation, the information remained in the TUC report. TUC was unable to contact Citibank so TUC deleted the Citibank entry from the report. TUC's investigations are performed by clerks paid $ 7.50 per hour and who are expected to perform ten investigations per hour.

    WOW a whole $7.50 an hour and they have to do 10 investigations an hour, no wonder why they are always screwing things up.

    Hey, wait a minute. I'm a serious devotee of the Quarter Pounder with Cheeseâ?¢, Large Friesâ?¢, and Medium Diet Cokeâ?¢. Moreover, I'm sure we have some esteemed Creditnet members who have worked at our beloved McDonaldsâ?¢ as well.

    One out of every seven people in the US has worked at McDonalds at one time or another, including me. I worked there over 30 years ago when they were a lot better. 85 cents per hour. I got up to $1.40 per hour.

    Well, I'll let you in on why I'm down on them so much. I realize that things have probably changed and I'm just being "funny" for putting them down.

    But my experience really turned me off.

    When I first moved to Oklahoma City back in 1975, I needed something to pay the bills with until I got a job. So I went to work for a temp service and they sent me to a local plant making hamburgers for McDonalds. The meat, what little of it there was among the bones and gristle) came in large cardboard boxes. About 4 foot by 4 foot by about 5 foot tall. All frozen solid and no plastic protection. Meat right up against the cardboard. In each of those boxes was 8 pieces of 8 &#189 by 11 sheets of colored paper which were invoices or packing slips or whatever. The first step in the process was to use a fork lift that grabbed the box by it's sides and bottom and turn it upside down into a big hopper which had a chain drive and delivered the meat AND THE PAPER PACKING SLIPS to the meat grinder which ground the whole mess up into hamburger meat. When it came out of the grinder it went fhrough a roller that rolled it all down into a flat sheet and when it came out of there it went into another machine which sprayed the meat with nitrogen from a huge tank outside the plant. That instantly re-froze the meat and it went to another machine which cut the little patties out and they dropped through holes and the rest of the meat fed into another conveyor which took them back to the start of the process. The patties were under constant spraying from the liquid nitrogen tank keeping them rock hard.

    I always swore I would never eat another McTrash burger again in my life and I never have.

    I was not defending them - only stating facts. I don't eat there either. I would tell you why, but it is too gross, far worse than your story.

    If you want to hear some really annoying and interesting things, read a book called "Fast Food Nation". I will never eat at Mickey D's again because of it. And it's not because of the quality of the food.

    According to the book: 1. McDonalds is the largest distributor of children's toys. They target children. Ray Kroc said that if an adult walks into a restaurant, only one meal is purchased, but if a child walks into a restaurant, they bring 1 or 2 adults who also purchase meals.

    2. McDonalds is such a huge consumer of beef that the quality they purchase is actually superior to the beef (cleanliness wise) you buy at the grocery store.

    Just fascinating little worthless facts to keep my brain buzzing.
