McDonald’s Wants ‘McJob’ Removed From Dictionaries

McDonald’s is complaining about the OED’s definition of McJob — “An unstimulating, low-paid job with few prospects, esp. one created by the expansion of the service sector” — on the grounds that it’s unflattering. The problem for McDonald’s, though, is that it’s true. How is that not the definition of a job working at a McDonald’s?
