A while back we mentioned that McDonald's profits were back up a little bit after they fired their U.S. President.
That's cool and all, but it didn't really help — key sales figures dropped again in January. The world's biggest hamburger chain restaurant just can't get it's supply chain issues in china under control, and there's a growing weakness in Japan.
