A new OECD study published today has outlined steps that will help stimulate job growth across Ireland.
The economic data from the published report shows that by leaving your food packaging on the table and not putting it in the bin yourself, could give a massive boost to local employment.
McDonald’s has locations in every county in Ireland, but could be employing more people if customers stopped cleaning up after themselves and let McDonald’s employ more staff.
The research showed that in the mid 90s, the fast food chain went on a marketing campaign to get people to tidy up after themselves, as they were too stingy to employ any more people to deal with the issue.
The report suggested:
…that people should stop working for free for McDonald’s and encourage the multinational chain to employ more staff to clean the restaurant. It will have a direct impact on employment figures and help stimulate economic activity.
The report outlined that if people stopped working for free for one of the unhealthiest food chains on the planet, thousands of people could be taken off the live register, saving the tax payer millions of euro per year and giving a much needed boost in income to local economies.
McDonald’s have just released figures showing them with a pre tax profit of over 12% and people are reminded that the company can well afford to employ more people to wipe down a few tables, rather than help them out for free.
