I worked at McDonald's from 1970 to 1973 when hamburgers were 20 cents and only white males were hired. AMA!
My short bio: I started in high school and continued in college. I was at two different stores and worked days, nights, split shifts and overnight. I opened, closed, worked the front counter, grill, fries, shakes, and for a while was essentially an assistant manager, taking inventory, doing the paperwork, and "calling the shots".
Edit: Per request, let me make it clear that who we hired was the franchisee's decision, not corporate policy.
My Proof: *sigh* Yes, that's me
