A job posting for a McDonalds franchise cashier opening in Massachusetts that required a college degree caused a stir among the media today, with much hand-wringing about job prospects in America, but it was all in error.

In nobama’s economy is is not a requirement but a reality of where degreed professionals can find work.
Probably just a joke. People need to lighten up. McDonald’s knows that, in ObamaNation, their cashier jobs are about all that is left out there for new college graduates. Unless you know somebody who can get you a job with the Federal government.
I’ll bet their are a lot of McDonald’s cashiers with degrees in English, Art, Philosophy, Psychology, Drama, Music Education, Womyns Studies, African-American Studies, Latino Studies, LGBT Studies and any other degrees that generally do not translate into real-world jobs.
Some of them are now majoring in “would you like the combo meal” studies.
RE: Drama, Latino Studies
They can use this experience to write a play or a book ...
On the other hand, considering the math skills of the average cashier, who relies on pictures displayed on the register instead of numbers, maybe a college degree really is required these days to be competent in basic addition and subtraction.
Still you need to be smarter then a Checker Employee!! (Checker's alway screw up my order, especially the one near my office.)
I agree with you, they may need to even bump it up to the Master’s degree level given the sorry state of higher Ed.
Hey, with a BA degree, who knows? They might even get the orders right. For a change.
Would think a BA degree might be a negative for a cashier job?
BA = Bungled Arithmetic
Is it a coincidence that the term “McJobs” disappeared from the MSM in Jan 2009.
I know several college graduates who couldn’t handle the job.
With a doctor’s degree you might quality for shift manager!
