Obama moment yields offers for McDonald's worker

CAPE CORAL, Fla. (AP) - A McDonald's worker who got President Barack Obama's attention at a town hall meeting in Florida says his job prospects were super-sized by the spotlight.

Nineteen-year-old Julio Osegueda told CBS' "Early Show" Wednesday that he has gotten two offers since the televised exchange.

The communications major at Edison State College said a radio station offered him an internship and a local baseball team owner wants him to broadcast the home opener in April.

Osegueda told Obama on Tuesday that he had worked at McDonald's for more than four years because he couldn't find another job.
