MacDonald's Is The Future?

McDonald’s Corp. (MCD), the world’s biggest restaurant chain, said it hired 24 percent more people than planned during an employment event this month.

McDonald’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.

[emphasis added]

Most of these are minimum wage jobs. Fancy that, over a million applications for a minimum wage job. Signs of desperation?

Think of what the 948,000 people who applied for these most menial of jobs, and were turned away - "Loser! You are no good!"
