Tomorrow, prescription salve April 19, McDonald’s is looking to hire up to 50,000 people nationwide. Offering jobs with flexibility, training, competitive benefits and growth opportunities, McDonald’s also has a scholarship program for employees and the opportunity to earn college credits.
Currently employing more than 650,000 people, McDonald’s restaurants spend nearly $43.3 million per day and are a major economic presence in American communities. This target of hiring 50,000 new employees means that McDonald’s and their franchisees will generate more than $1.4 billion in consumer spending at a time when the U.S. economy needs the boost and our communities need jobs more than ever. African American teens, 38.5 percent of whom are currently unemployed, may especially benefit from this hiring blitz.
The National Urban League continues to push for federal action in response to the jobs crisis in urban America and applauds McDonald’s for doing its part with its “National Hiring Day.”
