I tried everything on McDonald's breakfast menu and saw why it can't just rely on iconic classics to fend off new competition
Irene Jiang / Business Insider McDonald's has long sat on the fast-food breakfast throne, but new forces threaten its sovereignty. As a result, the chain has been timidly tinkering with its breakfast menu, adding such oddities as breakfast bagels and McChicken breakfast sandwiches. But with its rivals growing stronger by the day, McDonald's must rally its breakfast forces and prepare for the epic battle to come. I took it upon myself to test McDonald's entire breakfast menu to see how well-prepared it is for the winds it must weather. And while its core is strong, it needs to be whipped into shape if it wants to fend off any would-be usurpers. Sign up for Business Insider's retail newsletter, The Drive-Thru, to get more stories like this in your inbox. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. McDonald's has long been the king of breakfast, but recently, the iconic chain has been tweaking its menu here and there in an effort to boost disappointing sales. Times are tough and getting tougher. After the Chicken Wars of August 2019, McDonald's chicken sales slumped. Then, one of McDonald's biggest rivals, Wendy's, announced in September it would be launching a breakfast menu nationwide in 2020 — replete with finger-lickin' chicken sandwiches of its own. Then, McDonald's decided to add chicken to its breakfast menu in 2020. Old dogs need to learn new tricks if they want to compete with the pups. McDonald's breakfast has so far stood the test of time, but will it withstand the test of taste? I tried everything to find out.For the whole shebang, my total was $56.58 with promotional pricing. I ordered all of the entrees on the breakfast menu except for sandwiches that contained just egg or just sausage. I also ordered three drinks from the McCafe menu. Irene Jiang / Business Insider DRINKS — McCafe's selection is extensive but also can be overwhelming. I got an iced coffee, strawberry banana smoothie, and iced mocha. Irene Jiang / Business Insider ICED COFFEE, $2.69 — I didn't realize that the iced coffee came with milk added.

Jeremy Corbyn's Labour manifesto harks back to 1940s | Larry Elliott
Party leader has taken postwar socialist ideas and added a modern populist twistLatest election news – live updatesFree broadband. Free adult learning. Free dental care. The biggest council house building programme in decade. Abolish student tuition fees and bring back maintenance grants. All paid for by squeezing the rich, raising corporation tax, making tech giants pay the exchequer a fair whack, and by borrowing more. As Jeremy Corbyn was proud to state, this was the most radical Labour party manifesto in years.One of the questions asked at the document’s launch was whether Labour wanted to turn the clock back to the 1970s. Actually, the inspiration was more Clement Attlee in 1945 than Tony Benn 30 years later. Labour’s starting point, as at the end of the second world war, was that something has gone fundamentally wrong with free-market capitalism and only a socialist transformation can put things right.

'It's life or death for us': A group of McDonald's employees filed a lawsuit accusing the chain of failing to protect workers from violence in restaurants
Reuters A group of McDonald's employees in Chicago has filed a lawsuit against the chain, they announced in a Thursday press release. The lawsuit, filed Thursday by 17 Chicago-area employees who are backed by the labor group Fight for $15, alleges that there is a "citywide and nationwide pattern" of violence in McDonald's stores and argues that profit-focused corporate decisions are compromising workers' safety.  "The incidents described in this complaint are not random or unforeseeable," the suit argues.

"McDonald's takes seriously its responsibility to provide and foster a safe working environment for our employees, and along with our franchisees, continue to make investments in training programs that uphold safe environments for customers and crew members.
