- WHITE PAPERS
In light of the recent class action lawsuits brought against McDonald's for alleged wage theft, employees and allies in 33 cities staged a protest against the company on Tuesday.
According to a news release, workers and community and faith leaders protested in cities from Raleigh, N.C., to Los Angeles, calling on the company to "stop its illegal wage theft."
The suits filed last week in California, Michigan and New York allege McDonald's is robbing employees by forcing them to work off the clock, shaving hours off their time cards and not paying them overtime, among other practices. New York settled its case this week for about $500,000.
Also Tuesday, Low Pay Is No OK launched robbedonthejob.org, a website that "features first-person stories of fast-food workers who have had wages stolen by employers," a release said.
