Brandeis workers strike in light of McDermott’s comments

Screen Shot 2014-03-16 at 4.32.52 PMA large gathering of Sodexo’s Brandeis workers picketed outside the unfinished dining hall on sunday evening in light of Doug McDermott’s negative review of their food, prompting the university to cancel tonight’s dinner.

“I wake up at 5:30 every morning to make food for a bunch of kids that aren’t mine. What thanks do I get for this? My hard work is raked through the mud all over TMZ for my friends to see,” said Brandeis chef Yolanda Watkins.

Brandeis workers banded together in show of unity outside of the most popular dining hall on campus, with signs that read “McAngry” and “If the Food is So Bad, McMake It Yourself.”

“I always thought he loved the food. He always got such big plates whenever he came in. I guess he didn’t like the food at all,” Watkins said. “I don’t want to cook for Creighton again until Mr. McDermott apologizes for his hurtful remarks.”

Creighton Dining was not available for immediate comment, but in the wake of the remarks Sodexo corporate is said to be experiencing a state of panic due to a 12% drop in stock price.

“While we are disappointed in Mr. McDermott’s remarks, we stand by the quality of food we serve to Creighton students, and have no plans of improving the food any time soon.”┬áCEO Max Waters said this to the media outside Sodexo World Headquarters.
