I’ll put that question to you in another way;

Did you know that in 2003, Merriam Webster added the word “McJob” to its dictionary and defined it as–check this out, “a low-paying job that requires little skill and provides little opportunity for advancement.”


Now, I would wager that this year’s high school seniors aren’t trying to figure out a way to game the system, so that they can have first dibs at some of these $8.00 an hour jobs.

But, some people are looking for a way to get out of their holes. Some people are trying to keep up with their car payments.

And I’ll bet that there are more than a handful of 55-year olds who haven’t been able to find a job in over a year thinking about applying for one of these on April 19th.

Joel is Highly Principled
There are many people in the franchise business who claim to to be experts in the field. Unfortunately many of them lack both knowledge and integrity. Joel, however, is without question one of the most qualified and principled people I know, in or out of his industry."
