This is certainly a story of good news, bad news.
McDonalds recently announced a hiring marathon for 50,000 positions nationally. Keeping in mind that these are minimum wage jobs, that was already a good news/bad news scenario from the outset. But in any great story, there is always a punch line. This one has two punch lines.
McDonalds ended up hiring 62,000 people nationally. More good news. But here is the clincher…they turned away over 900,000 people. Welcome to Obama’s vision of a new America….Hope and Change. It seems to me that if we do not make a change in 2012 there won’t be any hope left.
