Wait, so I can make an easy $50.00 just by going on an interview?!

That’s exactly what’s happening at a McDonald’s in Tampa, Florida.

According to Blake Casper, a McDonald’s franchise owner, one of his restaurants is short on staff and having trouble recruiting applicants.

Some things that could play a factor in the hiring issue is the enhanced unemployment benefits and with more businesses opening back up, there is more competition.

Casper stated that he has also increased starting wages to entice applicants.

Would you interview just to get the $50 even if you had no interest in the job? If you’re a business owner, is this something you would consider doing to attract applicants?
