"Not Exactly the Job Growth We Were Looking For"


Not Exactly the Job Growth We Were Looking For, Econospeak: ...Kim Peterson notes one firm is about to hire 50,000 more workers:

The hiring binge is one result of the extraordinary business run McDonald's has engineered over the past few years. When the economy tanked, more people turned to the Golden Arches to dine on a budget.

We are eating at McDonald’s and not better restaurants because we are poorer. And these jobs are not exactly coming with very high wages.
