McDonald's Workers in Three States Sue for Wage Theft

 

This past Wednesday, fast food workers in Michigan, New York, and California joined together to file a class action lawsuit against fast food chains with McDonald's clearly in the cross hairs of their lawsuit. What the workers are after is, of course, money. Their suit alleges the following:

  1. McDonald's compels workers to punch out, but continue working
  2. McDonald's reduces hours reported on time cards
  3. McDonald's denies workers overtime pay they otherwise have earned

In all fairness, analysis of the lawsuit indicates that the plaintiffs are conducting a fishing expedition to uncover evidence of wrong doing by the fast food giant. Workers have been staging a symbolic revolt over the past several months to compel the company to pay them a higher wage than the minimum. Their objective is to earn a "living" wage to enjoy an improved standard of living while not necessarily improving the worth of the technical skills they offer their employers.

The higher-wage demanding workers are represented by the firm Cohen Milstein Sellers & Toll which has extensive experience in class action lawsuits. The firm has a reputation for taking on cases that have a reasonable expectation of shaking down employers.
