McDonald’s and its franchisees are looking to hire up to 50,000 new crew and restaurant management positions at restaurants across the country during a hiring event on April 19. The one-day event will seek to bring in and hire a combination of both full and part-time positions in close to 14,000 U.S. restaurants.
Here is MCD’s spin on this:
The investment around the target hiring of 50,000 employees is estimated that:
- McDonald’s and its franchisees will spend more than $518 million more in wages and salaries in the coming year, an average of more than $1.4 million every day.
- More than $41.5 million in training will be invested in the company’s new workforce instilling life-long business and customer service skills as well as setting employees up for success in current and future opportunities.
- The addition of 50,000 potential hires translates into $54 million more in payroll taxes contributed to the broader economy.
- Using a statistical multiplier effect, 50,000 new workers will generate almost $1.4 billion in annual spending more than $3.5 million per day.
