I stopped at the McDonalds in Pleasanton that morning at 4am on the way to the airport and it was closed / cop cars were there - makes more sense now....

Too bad Mac Donald's is not union, he could sue for unlawful discharge.

I think the only screening that McDonald's does for their hires is that they are breathing and can work standing for a shift. They obviously don't have to speak English or prove they are U. S. citizens.
