After denying rumors just a few months ago, Crain's is reporting that McDonald's is seriously considering moving the Oakbrook corporate headquarters downtown. This would be in line with comments from Steve Easterbrook at the recent townhall meeting that the Oakbrook campus is old and outdated. Look for even more layoffs or people leaving. This used to be a company that cared about its employees and valued their service to the company. Now it's just another company that only cares about the stock price. So very sad.

Sad to see McDonald's leave such a beautiful campus, and wonder area.
If they are encouraged due to a tax break from the Mayor, whose going to be taking up the slack ? It's us that live and pay taxes in cook country.
If McDonald's is leaving because of building up keep, - I'm sure they
could afford the maintenance.
Get with it Easterbrook!!!!
