A big “X” marked many a calendar today, as McDonald’s held a national hiring day in hopes of corralling 50,000 new workers. According to reports this morning, numerous local locations in Empire of the Golden Arches reported lines out the door.

Unfortunately, this afternoon a fight broke out at the McDonald’s at St. Clair Ave. and East 105th Street after applicants were turned away, according to Fox8. Three individuals were injured and taken to the hospital*. Police have arrested one individual and are looking for another.

A few weeks ago when it was reported that McDonalds was going to hire 50M people and put them on the midnight shift I predicted that crime would be commonplace at McD's. Well, even I couldn't predict that the fights and violence would break out before the employees were actually hired. Thast what happened yesterday in Cleveland.

I'm not one for boycotts but I will recommend that those who want to dine at McD's after this had better make sure they have plenty of security forces with them.

I blame Obama and Holder. If Obama’s economy wasn’t so bad, so many people wouldn’t have to go to McDonald’s to eat and McDs wouldn’t be hiring. If Holder’s DOJ encouraged prosecution of “his people”, maybe these incidents would not be happening.

CLEVELAND — Just after 2 p.m. Tuesday, police were called to the McDonald’s at E. 105th Street and St. Clair Avenue for reports of several people being run over by a car.

There was a large crowd there for the national restaurant chain’s “Hiring Day.”

Witnesses and police tell a Channel 3 News crew that two girls started fighting with other girls in the parking lot. Then the McDonald’s owner and the manager came out to break it up.

Witnesses said one girl and her friend got into her silver Infiniti while the fight continued.

Witnesses then said the girl in the silver Infiniti started it up and then backed up, running over the McDonald’s owner and the manager and two other people.

Pretty sure East 105th and St. Clair has more “Sneakers over the telephone wires” than “Golden Arches”. Pity. The people in that area really do need a chance for honest work.

Is this near the Over-the Rhine area or am I thinking of a different ghetto entirely?

Exactly what does it mean with the “sneakers over the wires”.

I’ve seen this, and understood it was some gang/black culture thing, but nothing beyond that.

You’re thinking of Cincinnati. This happened in Cleveland, home of ten cent beer night, flammable rivers, and projectile protest of bad referee calls. Or as I like to call it, “home”.

I thought it was a way of defining ones drug territory. Or, perhaps a polish boomerang?

My daughter had a friend in high school who was from a disadvantaged background. She tried to help the girl by setting up a job interview for her through another friend who worked at McDonalds. The girl then turned around and quit after about a week.

It was a tough but powerful lesson for my daughter.
You just can’t help some people.

When you treat an entire segment of society like children for 40 years, how do you expect them to act?

You said 50M.

That would be amazing.

I am sure people will sue saying they thought it was 50,000 at each location or something

Agreed. A couple of years ago, a coworker tried to help a few disadvantaged teenage girls by bringing them to our workplace for a day to see how the corporate world works. He’s a good guy and acted out of a good heart. Unfortunately, two of the girls began arguing and it turned physical. Security had to be called and they were all escorted out of the building. And these people wonder why they are where they are?

There is no ‘teaching’ of manners or responsibility..
one of my ‘favorites’-
Person comes into the bar, I am talking to the owner - after lunch. Person sits down, orders a beer or two, needs shave, looks ‘sloppy’ - not poor dirty, just sloppy. After a couple of beers he says “I heard they are looking for a bartender here”. I looked at the owner, and being the warm, people loving person I am said “I know the owner-
If you go home, shave, put on a shirt and trousers, hold the drink for after the interview, come back.
You will have to fill out an application, so make sure you bring your Drivers License or ID, Social Security Card and a pen will show you are prepared”.
The guy looked at me and said “F... it. Thanks, geez, its only a job, I ain’t going through all that”.

He had his act down pat though I didn’t see the ‘slip’ saying he was looking for a job.....

Another eyewitness, Antoine Grey, captured the incident on his cell phone and showed it exclusively to Fox 8 News.

I think we can all get a visual now.
