The day McDonald's will hire 50K people as a PR stunt is finally here! - Metro US

The day McDonald’s will hire 50K people as a PR stunt is finally here!

As Metro noted excitedly two weeks ago, McDonald’s is hiring 50,000 jobs in one day, and that day is today!

Want
a job, and don’t care particularly where it is? Then head down to your
local McDonald’s: The fast food giant today announced plans to hire
nearly 50,000 new employees on April 19, as part of a promotional
campaign against the disparaging term ‘McJob.’

[…] The new
hires would increase the company’s U.S. workforce by 7%, though industry
observers caution that fast food franchises often ramp up their
workforce for the busy summer months by hiring a similar number of
seasonal employees. McDonald’s says the April hires will be a mix of
permanent and temporary employees.

Sure, the average starting wage is $8, but as McDonald’s points out, that is above the minimum wage! McDonald’s is legally allowed to pay you less than it does, but it doesn’t! Besides, a job is a job, and why talk about health insurance and opportunities for growth at a time like this? Get on down today!
