McPassport to labor mobility

This page in:

Today in Brussels, McDonalds Europe launched a new program that could bring tremendous labor flexibility to its 225,000 European employees. The McPassport (I'm not making this up) makes its easier for employees to move to another of the roughly 6,000 McDonalds locations in Europe. The document contains detailed information on the employee - such as positions held, dates and salary history - although he or she will still go through an interview before hiring.

The Mexican newspaper El Universal observes that the McPassport fits well with the European Commission's European year of mobility. Currently, just 2% of EU citizens live and work in a member state that differs from their native state.

Seems like a great idea to me. Plus, McDonalds just saved its employees thousands of hours in resume drafting.
