McDonald's Corp. said it plans to cut 23% of the work force at its headquarters in Oak Brook, Ill., the first reduction in corporate staff in its 43-year history. The world's largest fast-food restaurant chain said it will eliminate 525 jobs across the board at its sprawling headquarters over the next 18 months, a larger reduction than analysts had expected. McDonald's expects most of the reduction to be achieved through voluntary severance and retirement, a spokesman said.
