Golden Opportunity is a myth-busting collection of 44 profiles of people who went from flipping burgers to building remarkable careers in business, the arts, politics, science, the military, and sports. Over the past six decades, millions of teens have earned their first paychecks under the golden arches. Whether they stayed for a year or a career, they learned work habits, basic skills, and the business principles that have made McDonald’s one of the best-run companies in the world. These are a few of their stories, in their own words, disproving the stereotype of the dead-end McJob.
