No Plans To Retire: 44 Years at McDonalds

At the age of 94, McDonald’s employee has no plans to retire after 44 years.

Meet Loraine Maurer, she’s spent nearly half her life serving customers at McDonald’s. The 94 year old says she likes the work and her customers. “That’s why I work, because I love them,” Maurer told ABC News explaining why she has spent 44 years working for the fast food restaurant.

Last week the McDonald’s franchise in Evansville, Ind., celebrated her long time services with customers stopping by to say they loved her and show appreciation. Customers say Loraine provides inspiration as well as cheerful service while making constant efforts to get everything right. To her coworkers, “don’t serve them anything you wouldn’t eat,” in a video published by Evansville Courier & Press.

Loraine regularly sees her family, a mother a four, grandmother of six and great-grandmother of seven, comer to the restaurant to eat. Of course Loraine’s favorite dish is that fish sandwich.

When it comes to work, she is on a mission! She rarely misses a day of work, “I get in here at 5 o’clock when they open,” she further explains, “I have to get up at 3.”

Loraine’s co workers and customers are so close, they offer to pick her up and drop her off at home after work. “I know what goes on with them. I know some of their children. Some ask me to say a prayer, and I do.”
