McDonalds McPissed at new McWord, 'McJobs' : McDonald's CEO Upset Over 'McJob' Entry: "CHICAGO Nov. 8 — McDonald's says it deserves a break from the unflattering way the latest Merriam-Webster's Collegiate Dictionary depicts its job opportunities. Among some 10,000 new additions to an updated version released in June was the term 'McJob,' defined as 'low paying and dead-end work.'

In an open letter to Merriam-Webster, McDonald's CEO Jim Cantalupo said the term is 'an inaccurate description of restaurant employment' and 'a slap in the face to the 12 million men and women' who work in the restaurant industry."

We are therefore going to make it NOT low paying dead-end work, he didn't continue.

Because we can't, because that's the way the system works, he never said.

And if they try and form unions, they'll be McFired!, and the joke ended.
