Think about it.  1 in 8 Americans started at Mickey D's.  McDonald's broke it down...

"Astronauts. Teachers. Award-winning playwrights. Executives. Small business owners. 1 in 8 Americans have one thing in common: the experience of working at a McDonald’s restaurant. Whether their career continued within the Golden Arches or beyond, McDonald’s is celebrating both former and current crew members who make up this diverse community with the launch of its new “1 in 8” initiative."

Are you a member of the 1 in 8 club?  I would if Taco Bell had one of these events.  I'm guessing Taco Bell is more like 1 in 100 - just an uneducated guess.

McDonald's also added information if you are a former employee interested in taking part...

"To officially kick things off, McDonald’s is dropping a limited-edition letterman jacket that represents what it means to be 1 in 8 – because a group this iconic deserves swag to match. Designed by McDonald’s alum and founder of lifestyle brand Robotic Minds Concept, Kendall Hurns tapped into his nostalgia and love for the brand to create this one-of-a-kind jacket, featuring IYKYK surprises for fellow crew. For each jacket sold, McDonald’s will contribute funding to help exceptional crew members achieve their aspirations through once-in-a-lifetime experiences and opportunities. Jackets go on sale on Monday, Oct. 16 at 10 a.m. ET at, while supplies last."
