    These ads expose a central contradiction in capitalism: the need for workers to work long cheap hours against the need for workers to buy as much as possible. Of course, what might be good for the capitalist class might also be bad for an individual capitalist. Given how much they agitate for more lunch breaks, I wonder if Mcdonald’s will give its employees more time off to eat.
