Despite the warning of ‘the McDonaldization of America’ from the farm activist Jim Hightower, the ‘McDonaldization’ seems to prevail nowadays in fast food industry in United States. As one of the biggest corporations in America’s service economy, Schlosser, the author of Fast Food Nation says, McDonald’s is responsible for 90 percent of the country’s new jobs. The company annually hires one million people. An estimated one out of every eight workers in United States has been employed by McDonald’s. When imagining how many people have experienced and learned at McDonald’s, it is hard to deny that McDonald’s has been carrying out its role fostering people and giving them one kind of uniformity in the national job market. Therefore teenagers, as future workers, also can learn some important lessons for their life through working at fast food restaurants.
