McDonalds Insulted By Dictionary Definition Of 'McJob'

The fast food chain McDonalds has launched a petition to change the dictionary definition of the word McJob. The Oxford English Dictionary describes a McJob as "an unstimulating low-paid job with few prospects". McDonalds says that is out of date and insulting.British MP Clive Betts agrees. "The description is really derogatory of the employees themselves," he said. "It's indicating that the jobs they do are worthless, that anyone could just walk in off the street and do them, that all the workers are untrained."
