It may be time to start brushing up on that cliched phrase, "would you like fries with that?" McDonald's has pledged to hire 50,000 new employees, all in one day: April 19. That will immediately boost the employee headcount by 7 percent, from 650,000 to 700,000.

Most of these jobs will be slightly above the national minimum wage level ($7.25 per hour), averaging about $8.30 per hour, but that will go up in states where the minimum wage is higher.
