David Fairhurst, chief people officer at McDonald’s, said: ” The ‘McJob’ dictionary definition is out of date, out of touch with reality and most importantly is insulting to those talented, committed, hard-working people who serve the public every day in the UK. It’s time the dictionary definition of ‘McJob’ changed to reflect a job that is stimulating, rewarding and offers genuine opportunities for career progression and skills that last a lifetime.”
What a load of old cobblers.
The Oxford English Dictionary defines the word Mcjob as”an unstimulating, low-paid job with few prospects, esp. one created by the expansion of the service sector”. The Collins Dictionary has something very similar.
Sounds fair enough to me. But in an effort to change it McDonalds is prepared to spend money and time and is wheeling out a load of influential people who simply, for some unfathomable reason, just love that company’s products.
Sorry McDonalds, talk to the hand, because the face isn’t listening.
