McDonald's to honor former workers with a letterman's jacket
Astronauts. Teachers. Award-winning playwrights. Executives. Small business owners. 1 in 8 Americans have one thing in common: the experience of working at a McDonald's restaurant.
Whether their career continued within the Golden Arches or beyond, McDonald's is celebrating both former and current crew members who make up this diverse community with the launch of its new "1 in 8" initiative.
To officially kick things off, McDonald's is dropping a limited-edition letterman's jacket that represents what it means to be 1 in 8, because the corporation says a group this iconic deserves swag to match.
For each jacket sold, McDonald's will contribute funding to help exceptional crew members achieve their aspirations through once-in-a-lifetime experiences and opportunities.
Jackets go on sale Monday at 9 a.m. You can learn more here.
