McDonalds Petitions Against Definition Of A McJob

According to British GQ Daily News: the definition of a “McJob” in the Oxford English Dictionary as “an unstimulating low-paid job with few prospects” has infuriated the fast-food giant McDonald’s who has today launched a customer-driven petition to get the definition removed. A spokesperson for McDonald’s said that the supposedly outdated definition was “insulting to the 67,000 people who work for us within the UK”. Rather than petitioning, maybe McDonalds should consider paying its workers more competitive wages, and offering a more stimulating work environment that provides meaningful, legitimate opportunities for advancement.
