BBC wrote:
The UK arm of McDonald's is planning a campaign to have the dictionary definition of a McJob changed.

The Oxford English Dictionary says it is: "An unstimulating, low-paid job with few prospects, esp. one created by the expansion of the service sector."

But Lorraine Homer from McDonald's said the firm felt the definition was "out of date and inaccurate".


My emphasis

A low-pay, low-prestige, low-dignity, low-benefit, no-future job in the service sector. Frequently considered a satisfying career choice by people who have never held one.

Yay for Douglas Coupland! Those burger bastards want to get their heads out of their arses and find something better to do with their obscene profits than fight complex and unnecessary legal cases. Tossers.
