McDonald’s is Bringing More Than 5,000 Jobs to Louisiana
In a rare display for this day and age, a fast food restaurant chain isn't looking to replace employees with machines in the face of the fight for a higher minimum wage - but is actually looking to expand their human workforce in Louisiana. According to myarklamiss.com, the 2nd largest fast-food chain in the world (behind Subway) will dramatically expand it's workforce this summer starting with adding 5,000 + jobs in Louisiana alone!
The company's global workforce has already risen well above 1.9 million employees, and will most likely smash through the 2 million employee mark before the end of the year. To put that in to perspective, it would take more than 4 times the amount of people currently living in Shreveport / Bossier to staff all of the McDonald's of the world.
The food McGiant is taking it one step further by dumping $1.5 million into their "Archways to Opportunity" programs. According to the official McDonald's website for the program, Archways offers qualifying employees a chance to :
- Improve English skills
- Earn a high school diploma
- Work toward a college degree
- Get help making an education plan with advisors
