Aldi, the German supermarket chain, and McDonald’s have signed a remarkable alliance for the German market. They have agreed that Aldi can take over staff from the fastfood chain while its restaurants are closed. The agreement is valid for a limited period only, and afterwards all those who apply can simply return to work for McDonald’s.
McDonald’s Germany CEO says "Everyone in Germany should do whatever he or she can to triumph over this crisis. With this agreement, we can help them do this and achieve a win-win situation: our employees can work if they want to, while Aldi finds a lot of extra staff in one go"
Special times require special solutions.
