How many Americans have worked at a McDonald’s?


Answer: One in Eight

That’s right, according to Reader’s Digest one in eight U.S. workers has been employed by McDonald’s at some point in their careers. This list includes Rachel McAdams, Pink, Macy Gray, Jay Leno, Carl Lewis, Jeff Bezos, and Andie MacDowell. The Oxford Dictionary even has a term for being employed by the Golden Arches, “McJob”, which is defined as “A low-paid job with few prospects.” Hey, you have to start somewhere, might as well get a few free fries and burgers while you’re at it.
