Is this fair??
Here's the deal, it's far cheaper to emply a 17 year old than an 18 year old (well, in Australia it is), so how do you keep your staff costs down? Hire 17 year olds, tell them they have real potential for a long term postition at McDonalds, then fire them on their 18th birthday with no warning. Yep, just out of the blue. Don't even right a referance for them. This has happened more times than anyone can count. What gives McDonalds the right?
