Chapter 3 behind the counter

  • This chapter talks about the transformation Rumohr

  • of Colorado Springs, Colorado. At first the city was full of prominent people, nice houses, independent businesses, and beautiful scenery. Now it is just like the rest of the cities in America; it has been taken over by chain restaurants and many conformed neighborhoods.

  • The population has more than doubled since 1970. There are over 500,000 who live there today.

  • Colorado Springs became dependent on military spending, and Camp Carson and Peterson Army Air Base were built. Thousands of troops were brought to the area. More military bases were soon to come.

  • The city became very technologically advanced and business leaders gave Colorado Springs nicknames such as “Silicon Mountain,” “The Space Capital of the Free World,” and “Space Mountain.”

  • Many evangelical groups were based in the area, such as Focus on the Family.

  • The city became a place of diversity, just like many places in the country.

Stroking Rumohr

  • Burger King, McDonalds, and Tricon Global Restaurants (Taco Bell, KFC, other YUM! restaurants) wanted to work together instead of being rivals.

  • They thought this would be best for the customers.

Detecting lies
Detecting Lies Rumohr

  • McDonalds wanted to give their employees lie detector tests, but the employees did not like this idea.

  • The McDonald’s employees in Mason City, Iowa voted to join the United Food and Commercial Workers union in 1971. As a result, McDonalds no longer asked crew members to take lie detector tests. This was added to their labor laws.

  • Those who work in the fast food business in Colorado Springs complain about being disrespected at work.

  • One woman was so mad at one of the workers for putting mustard on her burger that she threw her burger at the worker.

  • These fast food restaurants aren’t supposed to give teens under the age of 18 more than 8 hours a day and are prohibited from giving them jobs with hazardous equipment.
