Mega Millions winner won’t share with McD’s co-workers
12:48 pm April 2, 2012, by George Mathis

McDonald’s workers in Baltimore are serving Unhappy Meals today after a co-worker, who claims to have won a third
of the world record $656 Mega Millions lottery jackpot, says she won’t be sharing.

The New York Post reports that Mirlande Wilson, 37, says she has a winning ticket, but that she bought it with her
own money, not that of her co-workers, who had pooled their resources in an attempt to win the big Friday prize.

“We had a group plan, but I went and played by myself. [The ‘winning’ ticket] wasn’t on the group plan,” Wilson told
the Post.

Winning tickets were sold in Maryland, Illinois and Kansas.

According to the article, Wilson ran the McDonald’s office pool that fateful day, getting $5 from 15 co-workers.
She purchased the pool tickets and left them at the restaurant in a safe place, according to the article.

Just before closing shop Friday evening, however, the owner of the fast food restaurant says he gave Wilson another
$5. Wilson bought more tickets after leaving work and took them home, but she claims the winning ticket was not
purchased with the final $5 contribution.

After Wilson called in to work Saturday to say she’d no longer be peddling fried taters, a couple of co-workers
went to her home and beat on the door until she answered.

“These people are going to kill you. It’s not worth your life!” said one after she opened the door.

As of Monday afternoon, no one had claimed the prize, worth an estimated $105 million after taxes.

Wilson may be fibbing. When pressed to produce the winning ticket she told the newspaper “I don’t know if I won.
Some of the numbers were familiar. I recognized some of [them].”

The McDonald’s owner declined to comment except to say, “It’s all [BS], if you ask me. It’s speculation.”

What a big bunch of trouble!!!

If capitalism promotes innovation and creativity then why aren't scientists and artists the richest people in a capitalist nation?
