How to cut fast food by 50%
Fast food companies are scrambling to improve their menus and menus for customers by cutting fast food employees and cutting hours, the Associated Press reported.
The AP reported Wednesday that McDonald’s Corp. is trying to cut more than 100 jobs, including cooks, at a Pennsylvania fast food chain and its suppliers, and is also planning to lay off about 1,400 workers.
Fast food giants like McDonald’s and Wendy’s have said they need to cut the hours workers are working to meet labor standards.
The company announced in February that it was going to trim 200 workers and eliminate more than 1,000 jobs at its stores in Ohio, Florida and Texas.
Wendy’s and McDonald’s have also cut hours at some locations.
Wendy is in the process of downsizing some locations to cut costs.
Wendy’s has cut the number of employees it has in some stores in Florida to about 6,000, including about 5,000 in its restaurants in Tampa, Orlando and Jacksonville.
That would be a reduction of nearly 20 percent from the roughly 8,000 workers at the stores.
McDonald’s has said it has to close more than 4,000 locations, including its flagship franchises, in its U.S. operations.
Wendy and McDonalds have said their U.K. and Australian locations will have to close, too.
The companies have said the layoffs will save the company millions of dollars.
