If not for McDonald’s, last months job numbers would have been half what they were. You see McDonald’s had a a open call mid May for job seekers at all levels of the company and received One Million Applicants.
the worldâ€™s biggest restaurant chain, said it hired 24 percent more people than planned during an employment event this month.
McDonaldâ€™s and its franchisees hired 62,000 people in the U.S. after receiving more than one million applications, the Oak Brook, Illinois-based company said today in an e-mailed statement. Previously, it said it planned to hire 50,000.
The April 19 national hiring day was the companyâ€™s first, said Danya Proud, a McDonaldâ€™s spokeswoman. She declined to disclose how many of the jobs were full- versus part-time. McDonaldâ€™s employed 400,000 workers worldwide at company-owned stores at the end of 2010, according to a company filing.
I personally find it a good thing all of those jobs were available and who cares what the number was, McDonald’s was smart enough to take advantage during a depression to hire qualified personnel instead of getting the bottom of the ladder employees who last a week instead. McDonald’s hired 24K more then they intended to and were surprised to get 1 MILLION applicants. I know full well if there were a Republican in the White House and McDonald’s was the major hiring company during this depression, the headlines would be full of the burger President. It is unfortunate that the media wing of the Democrat Party has no honor and no desire to be an honest broker of the news, because Barack Hussein Obama has created conditions in America that despises business period.
As a Conservative American, I don’t find any job beneath me but the Faculty Lounge Administration has made it their purpose to bring down those at the top to somehow bring up those from the bottom and create a “middle”. It is a pathetic that these Socialists never learn that sometimes those at the bottom have no desire to get to the middle, they just want a handout. Millions would never consider McDonalds the place to start a career and yet they truly are a company where you start at the bottom and can work your way to the top, they are Americana!
