Curious whether McDonald's [or perhaps the IOC] will pay for these bilingual "volunteers?" Jul 11, 2010

Greetings to all.

May one posit some curiosity whether McDonald's [or perhaps the IOC] will pay for the important interpreting [and related facilitating] services provided by such bilingual "volunteers?"

The news item make no mention of that aspect or of the liability, and bad press, associated with not providing LEP attendees of the 2012 Olympics with on-call interpreters.

Regards,
