Is there a college degree for hamburger flipper?

“As the White House stages a first-of-its-kind community college summit Tuesday, the Obama administration is proposing that stronger partnerships between two-year public colleges and big-name U.S. employers such as McDonald’s and The Gap will help better match workers with jobs during the economic recovery and beyond.”

Perhaps I’m being a bit cynical… but exactly what kind of classes at two-year public colleges does one take to gain employment at McDonald’s or The Gap?  Do they have a ‘Hamburger flipping’ course?  Color coordination?
