A lawyer has sued McDonald’s in China because receipts it gave out were mostly in English, a state-run newspaper reported Friday. The Beijing Youth Daily said the lawyer, identified as Shan, argued that the use of English instead of Chinese was a violation of his rights.
“McDonald’s offers food service in China, but it does not use Chinese, which … violates the consumers’ right to know,” the newspaper quoted Shan as saying. […]
The Youth Daily said Shan wants an apology and compensation of 1 yuan, about 13 U.S. cents. It did not give details on any court case.
