A McDonald’s restaurant in Taiwan has been dressing its female cashiers in schoolgirl uniforms and pink maid outfits and having them address customers as “master,” according to a Japanese news website.
The skimpy outfits began appearing on workers at the McDonald’s near Taipei Railway Station last week, reports Scott Dixon for Rocket News 24.
The schoolgirl uniforms consist of miniskirts, knee-high socks, neck ties and “cat ears.” Videos posted online show the women donning the uniforms and saluting customers as if they are at a military academy.
Other female workers have been spotted dressed as maids, wearing short pink dresses with white ruffled aprons and black knee-high socks. Videos show them posing seductively with McDonald’s french fries and hamburgers.
“Workers wearing the maid uniforms greeted customers by calling them ‘master’ and using other maid-like phrases,” Dixon writes. “While wearing the schoolgirl outfits, they very politely thanked each customer by calling them their mentor or senior as if the customer was an older student at the same school.”
The short length of the dresses appears to make it very difficult for the women to bend over while preparing food.
The workers have also worn flight attendant outfits, complete with black rolling suitcases and tiny miniskirts.
Male employees who appeared in the videos posted online were not wearing costumes, aside from one man who dressed as a pilot.
We reached out to McDonald’s for comment on the costumes and will update when we hear back.
Here’s a video of the workers in action:
