Hmm... So who is the Devil here on this photo? Is it McDelivery sign as a representation of the "corporate evil"? In this case I think it's a bit shortsighted analogy. If anything, that company is helping to develop the economy of the place providing more jobs and income to people so that they would not have to sit on the streets like that guy strugling to get by.

I'm going to have to go ahead and disagree with Sergei. The whole any job=happiness or lack of struggle analogy, although creative, is too general. No, I'm changing that, I think that man would be happy and not struggling if we was behind the counter of a McDonald's sending out McDelivery. No, I'm changing my mind again. This man is just depressed and he is recapturing the struggle within him self for resolution.

Trust me, I don't work in McDonnalds, but I work in a Fortune Top 10 corporation. And my wage is a lot higher than almost any McDonnald's employee. But I do feel depression, unhappyness, and struggle just as much, just because my job is not intersting or emotionally satisfying to me. That, however, doesn't make the corporation I work for "evil"! Of course, I'd rather do what I love and get through life trouble free. But that does not exist, except maybe in rare cases. People have to work to earn a living and some get more, others get less, for whatever reason, and they might feel depressed at their work places. But again, that does not make the companies they work for "evil". That was my point.

I see a contrast between the logo beside that man and the man himself. A figure of the past reminiscing while their world is slowly disappearing behind the increasing modernization of the country.

How arrogant is it for a person so well off to compare the feelings of those much less fortunate then themselves.

How will someone like that understand the sort of feeling the less fortunate feel?
