The information in the newspaper, which for now has not been confirmed by the company, cites an email in which McDonald’s informed the employees of its corporate offices in USA and some outside the country that they must work from their homes between Monday and Wednesday.

The company, according to that message, plans to use those days to virtually report personnel decisions.

Last January, McDonald’s already announced that it was preparing a restructuring and that the changes would begin to be announced in April, without giving any details about the number of positions that could be affected or the savings that were sought.

“Some jobs that exist today will be moved or will disappear,” then pointed out the top executive, Chris Kempczinskiquoted by the WSJ.

McDonald’s employs around 150,000 people worldwide in its offices and in the restaurants it operates directly, not counting franchises. Approximately 70% of those jobs are outside of USA.

This Monday, the company’s shares opened with increases in Wall Street and half an hour after the start of operations they were advancing around 0.50%.
