Sounds racially motivated since college degrees are a dime a dozen these days.

I think that's only one McDonalds.

But the requirement for experience for entry level jobs has been a problem since I was in high school.

If it requires experience, it's not an entry level job, by definition.

By definition, a cashier at a fast food place is considered an entry level job. It's not a job that should require experience. That does not mean employers don't require it on their own accord.

My last job was technically an entry level job, but they were looking for experience. I only got it because the guy I was up against was considered too flakey. He had experience though.

That's not what "by definition" means

a cashier at a food place

Protip: If you know you can do a job, apply for it even if you lack the "required" experience.

This.

"Required" is negotiable and the literal definition of it doesn't actually apply to most "required" qualifications. Some of the sole exceptions are things like requiring a teaching certification to be hired as a teacher. They won't budge on that one.

How much are they paying these college grads? No one is going to college to work at McDonald's

Not suprised, the amount of Bachelor's degrees in society has weighed down their value, making it seem inevitable that basic entry level jobs will begin to require some post secondary education. I have been hearing about this for around a year. Jobs just are not as readily avalible.

bachelor degrees are the new high school diplomas, they've been saying this for years not just in the last year

Not if you're in "Teach For America."

But a McDonald's cashier isn't even an entry level job.

Entry level to retail management maybe

It's not a job you need an education for though.

You can get a teaching job, with your own classroom with a waiver stating you're x number of days away from certification.

Nice avatar.
