McDonald's Philippines inks new agreement to hire more seniors, persons with disabilities

The fast food chain has been pushing to get more staff from the two sectors.

The Philippine franchisee of McDonald’s is looking to hire more senior citizens and persons with disabilities.

Under a memorandum of agreement with Pasay City’s local government, the fast food giant will open employment opportunities to 50 senior citizens and persons with disabilities in 14 participating stores.

The company earlier hired 100 seniors and persons with disabilities in Manila and Pasig.

"The partnership will provide them the opportunity to earn and develop new skills as they experience the same world class training as an order presenter, drink drawer, table manager or overall guest relations," McDonald's said in a statement.
