My knowledge question…
Reasons Against the Claim:

Large corporations like Taco Bell, Burger King and Jack in the Box always have new positions available for the public, and often these jobs only require a general education diploma at minimum. By keeping the cost of goods relatively low to create their products, fast-food chains are able to…
