Uproar grows after multiple class-action suits allege
Golden Arches is stealing employees’ pay
"Days after class-action lawsuits claimed McDonald’s is deliberately and systematically stealing employees’ pay, workers and community and faith leaders will protest Tuesday in Greensboro – part of a nationwide series of actions calling on the fast-food giant to stop its illegal wage theft.
The suits 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. They demand McDonald’s, which earned nearly $5.6 billion in profits in 2013, pay back the stolen wages and stop its illegal theft of workers’ pay.
WHO: McDonald’s workers; fast-food workers with wage theft stories of their own; community, labor and faith leaders, including Representative Alma Adams and Reverend Nelson Johnson of the Beloved Community Center
WHAT: Protest Against Wage Theft at McDonald’s
WHERE: 617 Greenvalley Rd, Greensboro, NC
WHEN: Tuesday, March 18 at 12pm"
