Woman With Down Syndrome Makes Huge Decision After Working For McDonald’s For 30 Years

A hard-working Massachusetts woman with mild Down Syndrome is finally retiring from McDonald’s after working at the fast-food restaurant for 32 years.

Earlier this fall, the McDonald’s in Needham, Mass., threw a retirement party for Freia David, according to various local media reports

David has been the face behind the fryolator at that Needham McDonald’s for more than three decades.

“I make a lot of fries,” David told local TV reporters.

Of interest, David ended up finding her job at McDonald's because of the efforts of the Charles River Center in Needham (a support home for adults with disabilities).

Administrators point out David was one of the first clients of the Charles River Center to be successfully placed in a full time job, and the longest job holder.

David says she will definitely miss her friends at the restaurant, but she is also very much looking forward to retirement at the center.

“I get to relax and take care of myself,” she commented with a big smile.
