Employees sue for Mac attacks
A GROUP of employees from 13 McDonald’s restaurants in Chicago is suing the company, saying its drive for profits puts workers at “daily risk” of physical attack by dangerous customers.
The workers say McDonald’s has failed to protect them from a “citywide and nationwide” pattern of violence.
They cite several examples, including an incident in which a customer beat an employee with a sign.
The suit alleges that by changing physical barriers at check-out counters, the company has made it easier for customers to attack workers.
