I have been known to support a number of issues – often which fit in with my libertarian/free market/ business friendly view of the world.
so here is one more ..
It’s McDonalds ..
The Oxford English Dictionary currently describes a McJob as “an unstimulating low-paid job with few prospects”
. McDonalds are creating a petition to change that definition
I fully support that petition!
I, for one, have fond memories of Mc Donalds. As a new immigrant .. And later as an impoverished entrepreneur – in the early stages of setting up my business , McDonalds was a great place to go. The place is always clean. Open all hours of the day and night, the staff is polite, I see older and younger people working at Mc Donalds and I believe that there is a strong work ethic.
All qualities we should admire – rather than belittle – as the venerable Oxford English dictionary seems to be doing.
Further, anyone who has worked with me for even a modest amount of time, probably knows about my food allergies – especially to sesame seeds. Thus, with all my travel, to me – Mc Donald’s is a very safe place to go(try explaining to someone in Korea/Japan/Hong Kong – that you have allergies to certain things – it’s not easy!)
In any case, work is work .. No one should belittle it!
