  1. McDonald’s rapped over big sack

    Netherlands: US fast-food giant McDonald’s has been found guilty by a Dutch court of unlawfully dismissing a worker who added a slice of cheese to a colleague’s lunchtime burger.

    Bosses claimed that the extra cheese made the burger more expensive and the worker should have been charged more, but a judge tore into the company, which made $4.3 billion (£2.6bn) profit worldwide last year, demanding that executives pay the sacked worker 4,300 euros (£3,700) compensation.

    “It was just a slice of cheese,” the exasperated judge said.
