Most of the employees you see these days at a McD, Wendys, etc. are NOT high schoolers; they are adults, very often raising families.

Almost 14 years ago, the NYT did an article re: teens not wanting to work anymore at fast food restaurants:

"Given the views of most teenagers, especially those from middle-class backgrounds, the jobs at McDonald's and Burger King often fall to poor immigrants and older workers. And when teenagers see a restaurant staffed mostly by immigrants,...

Did I miss this, or was it forgotten?
