Although McDonald's CEO plans to trim $300 million in yearly expenses, reports the Wall Street Journal, and talked about getting rid of red tape and speeding up the franchising process, Steve Easterbrook didn't use the word "layoffs" specifically.

"Layers of bureaucracy will be stripped away to allow more nimble decision making and action. Progress will be bumpy and uneven. But the U.S. is now on the right path."
