McJobs: the web site

02.22.10

McJobs ## we all know what those are.

One online source defines a McJob as “a low-paying, low-prestige job that requires few skills and offers very little chance of intracompany advancement”.

McDonald’s was never very happy about the use of this term.

In fact, the company bought the domain name “mcjobs.com” just to make sure that no one could use it.

But they forget to acquire “mcjobs.org” ## and the global union federation for food workers, the IUF, together with LabourStart, bought the name and today are pleased to announce the public launch of McJobs.org, the website for McDonald’s workers around the world.

If you work in McDonald’s, or know anyone who does, or are just curious, please do check it out:
