Wednesday, November 12, 2003Open Letter to McDonald's
We are disappointed to hear that you are upset with the use of the term "mcJobs" (which, we understand, you have mctrademarked) to denote low-paying, dead-end jobs.
There can be no mcquestion about the low pay - which is not unreasonable, considering that in an ideal mcworld, a person would be paid according to his mcskills, mctraining, and mctalent. We realize, however, that this is not always the mccase.
We do side with you in disagreeing with the "dead end" tag. For many, this is a mcjob in which one learns the basics of the working world - show up on time, don't goof off, etc., etc., and from which an advance to higher pay and responsibilities is made mcpossible.
Perhaps the world would be better mcserved by your concentrating more on your mcproduct - which, we're told, is not all that bad - and less on trying to force mcpublic opinion by decreeing what may and may not be said.
McGonigle, McTavish, McGovern & McPherson,
Attorneys @ Law.
