This story happened when I was abroad ... but since it's new to me, I'll still post here.
A falsely listed ad led to these stories ... McDonald's requires college degree to be a cashier. Another story here.
It turns out it's false and it was just an error in the listing.
I still think this story is interesting. This is easily something you could see in the near future, given the left's hope to increase minimum wages. If there was no minimum wage, then low-skilled workers might be able to better obtain this job by offering to work for lower wages.
In Massachusetts however, the minimum wage is $8/hour. Obama wants to raise the national minimum wage to $9/hour How will lower-skilled workers be able to compete when a firm could hire a college graduate for just slightly more?
