10 Shocking Facts about McDonald’s

10. 1 in 8 American workers has been employed by McDonald’s.

According to “Fast Food Nation: The Dark Side of the All-American Meal”, written by investigative journalist Eric Schlosser and published in 2001, approximately one out of every eight American workers has been employed by McDonald’s at some point. The chain hires around one million people per year, which is more than any other organisation in the United States. Though some of these workers manage to move up the corporate ladder, the majority receive low wages and few benefits, learn no new skills, and tend to quit their “McJobs” after just a few months.
