Looking for a job? In a rather unprecedented move, McDonald’s has announced that April 19 will be National Hiring Day at participating locations across the country. In fact, the fast food giant is looking to hire up to 50,000 workers nationwide at nearly 14,000 U.S. restaurants for both part- and full-time positions.
The move is a powerful one, a rather eery reminder how big an entity McDonald’s truly is. To gain a perspective, the hiring of 50,000 employees can be roughly equated to a quarter of the new jobs set to be created in the entire United States during the month of March. A Fox News report reminds us that the government said the government added 216,000 jobs in March, a gain over the 192,000 filled a month earlier in February.
