Shocker: Only 6 Out of 100 Applicants Can Get a Job at McDonald's -- It's Time for Politicians to Stop Ignoring Our Jobs Crisis

Post by Guest on Thu May 05, 2011 1:16 pm

Last week, McDonald's announced with much fanfare that, after sifting through more than 1 million applications, it will be hiring 62,000 new workers. As one sly writer noted, a higher percentage of applicants got rejected by McDonald's than by Harvard, though the prestige of flipping Big Macs is not yet on par with a Harvard degree. We will not "win the future" by relying on low-wage service sector jobs to lead employment growth.

And to add insult to their stupidity Mickey D's is running a "CAREERS" commercial on TV now using a middle aged WHITE woman who is PLEASED as punch to be working for McDonalds with all THEIR benefits and is LIVING A HAPPY MEAL LIFE. It was so MUCH BS and a LIE.

That is sick, what can one afford on their crappy wages. Hope she likes living in her car [which is all you could afford in many areas]

I love HOW Mickey D's is promoting working for them IS a "CAREER". Working 10 hours a week flipping burgers IS NOT A CAREER". And the corporate scum will CONTINUE to perpetuate this LIE again. and AGAIN until the mindless BELIEVE.

McDonalds IS NOT A REAL CAREER unless your on the board of directors. Fast Food Services IS NOT the NATIONAL JOB path we should be going down what-so-ever.

35K, but you work 60 hours a week. This would be a management position so no overtime. That comes out to a little over $11 an hour for the responsibility of running the place and being on call 24/7. Is that the new American Dream?

I agree, lowered expectatons. Flipping burgers used tob e for teens after school now for adults. Pathetic. And they do not offer benefits or any real hours.
