From Indianapolis’ WISH TV :

McDonald’s has reworked its hiring practices after a Nashville television station reviewed sex offender registries in five states, including Indiana, and found dozens of the fast food restaurant’s employees.

McDonald’s U-S-A disputes some of the figures reported by WTFV. But yesterday, the company issued a new policy that forbids hiring convicted sex offenders at roughly eight-thousand company-owned stores.

I am almost 100% certain the burger chain’s new policy is unrelated to the recent announcement they’ll be scaling back the Happy Meal.
