Economic Collapse: McDonalds Turns Away Almost One Million Applicants

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.
The April 19 national hiring day was the company’s first, said Danya Proud, a McDonald’s spokeswoman. She declined to disclose how many of the jobs were full- versus part-time. McDonald’s employed 400,000 workers worldwide at company-owned stores at the end of 2010, according to a company filing.

  1. It’s amazing. How do people get by on such low wages? How can so many eat that shit?

  2. Yes and McDonalds is in Wal Mart stores so
    are what crap are customers going to buy
    walmart crap or macdonalds crap. Or maybe
    they will just stay away.

  3. I million people apply for jobs at a fast food joint, knowing full well they will be paid less than $10.00 per hour and little or no benefits. Some will be offered a shift from 5AM - 8AM or 11AM - 2PM to cover busy breakfast or lunch times. 3 hours a day, 5 days a week, 15 hours...

    I've said it before, as soon as the Mail Box Money, that keeps 44 million Americans pacified ends, the shit will truly hit the fan.

    Groups of men (and women) who have been law abiding citizens all their lives will drive a truck to the back of a market and force their way inside. They will load the truck as fast as they can and leave quickly.

    Who will blame them? Our jobs are gone.

    3 years ago, my car registration was $52.00. Now it's $86.00, it should actually be about $28.00 this year, except the state can't live with what it has. I have to live within my means, but the state and federal government feels they are exempt.

    The illegal alien Mexicans keep flooding across the border daily. They refuse to stop making anchor babies and the state refuses to cut off Social Services (free money) to these criminals.

    The stress that we are all subjected to, can not last much longer.

    The LA Riots started when a group of angry people gathered on a street corner to vent their frustrations. Someone may have tossed a rock at a car or kicked a trash can into the street, something in an of itself, could hardly be defined as an act of violence, but that little act of frustration on one persons part, triggered a 5 day long riot causing hundreds of millions of dollars in property damage and the deaths of many.

    We as a society are already beyond the frustration level that started the riot.

    It's only a matter of time...

  4. I was one of the people that was turned away from mc donalds. College degree and good work reference didn't even help. I'm going to travel about 900 miles and hope I can get a job. If I can't I'm in deep shit.

  5. Amen to the long poster.

    And to the college kid:

    I know this probably doesn't matter, but, I feel deep down things are going to be changing very, very soon.

    The consumer lifestyle we've all been led to believe is a sham. This all revolves around petroleum. All of it.

    For all intents and purposes, it is magic. Since the discovery and harnessing of its great power we have seen the world's population EXPLODE at a rate of 700%.

    The problem is, our species was not tempered enough to tap its vast power. And now we see how it has corrupted us, and how it will continue to do so.

    We have become slaves to this power...

    We wake up everyday to go to jobs we do not like, to fulfill routines that we despise, in order to provide shelter and food for ourselves and our loved ones, so that we might live another day, so that we might buy more things in an attempt to bring contentment, and instruct our children to follow in our footsteps, because:

    This is how we were TOLD to live.

    But it feels awfully vacuous, does it not? Something is missing in our lives. And I feel we are going to learn--the HARD way--just what that something is.

  7. Shit! Shit! Shit! Shit Shit!

    We are in deep Shit!

  8. I was a teen in Mexico in the early 80's when the currency collapsed...Overnight the middle class was wiped out...The rich became poor unless they held hard assets...Doctors driving taxis and the smart poor becoming rich businessmen...Sweet sweet black market!

    It was the wild wild west like when the USSR collapsed in a way...Huge amounts of money and assets being scooped up for centavos...All heavy transactions had to be made in dollar amounts...Run on the banks and store prices shooting 100 times the amount.

    However, we got by and we stabilized...But we had the dollar to lean on...The mentality to survive and adapt is different from Americans...That and it's no shame to grow your food or eat beans and tortillas to get by.

    America NEEDS this in a way...We're fat, lazy, sick and what's worse APATHETIC...If it doesn't involve us PERSONALLY we don't care.

    We're in about 4 different wars right now but most still don't understand...Crop failures in the last 4 years have cut out all our reserves (Rice/soy/cooking oil/corn etc) that were left after bush/ubama sold our extra stock to corporations...We technically have over ONE THOUSAND BASES in 120 countries.

    We're being logged, looked at, examined, poked, prodded and recorded...We're being censored, arrested, threatened by our government yet only a small percentage cares.

    In order to wake this sleeping giant from it's superficial, egotistical, consumer addicted dreams we're going to have to starve a lil.

    That's when people will realize what's real...When your belly grumbles you either grow up or die.

    So they'll be a panic in parts of the country (Big City Black Communities mostly)...Crime, drug, alcohol use will shoot up...But the core of Americans will start to wake up.

    I see it at work as people who used to laugh at me for my dark views now ask for advice...Won't lie next 10-20 years will be rough but in the end it will makes us better than this Roman Circus atmosphere we have going right now.

    If you're religious teach your kids morals...If you hate religion teach your kids ethics.

  9. Oh this is not good at all people.
    When fast food jobs are hard to come by, it is time to take a very long walk off a VERY SHORT PIER.
    Our country is collapsing before our very eyes.

  10. If my wife and kids had 20 acres on the midwest prairie, and all we had was each other, I think we could be happy with that kind of povery. If we had that much A N D our good friends helping one another survive we could be VERY happy living in poverty. My family lives in poverty in this horrible city and see economic collapse coming to America-----we are NOT happy. We as a people have forgoten that "things" never make you happy. We must go back to our roots in every way. Perhaps we can after the crap hits the fan----if we live through it.
