More than 75,000 people applied for 2,000 jobs that McDonald’s Corp. has filled in Illinois, northwest Indiana and southern Wisconsin after the Oak Brook-based company’s first “National Hiring Day” on April 19. Of the 2,000 jobs filled, more than 1,000 are in the Chicago area, a McDonald’s spokeswoman said Thursday. The fast-food chain’s managers expect to continue to hire more people, though no estimate is available on how many more, the spokeswoman said.
