‘I learned more at McDonald’s than at college’

Unlike some colleges, McDonald’s does not have “safe spaces” or “trigger warnings.” Instead, they have a requirement that employees put the concerns of the customers ahead of their own.

Olivia Legaspi, an undergraduate at Haverford College and former McDonald’s employee, says that expectation helped her learn an important lesson about work and life: serving others comes first.
