McDonald’s employee with Down syndrome retires after 32 years

Still frame from NBC News video

A McDonald’s employee with Down syndrome is retiring after working at the restaurant for more than three decades. Freia David started working at a McDonald’s in Needham, Massachusetts 32 years ago.

She cleaned tables and refilled ketchup – but her favorite task was controlling the fry station.

Her coworkers and members of the community gave her quite a sendoff.

They filled the restaurant with Mickey and Minnie Mouse decorations and showered Freia with gifts.
