Feds: McDonald’s Responsible For Welfare Of Franchise Workers

The National Labor Relations Board ruled Tuesday that even if a McDonald’s restaurant is operated by a franchise, the fast food chain is still jointly responsible for the welfare of its workers, and is liable for wage and other labor violations. What do you think?

  • “Good. I hate to think the production of my bacon cheeseburger involves any kind of suffering.”

  • “I don’t see how you can expect McDonald’s to be aware of everything that happens at every place that uses its name and sells its food.”

    Geoffrey Hodges
    Systems Analyst
  • “As a person who has eaten at McDonald’s for 40 years and tacitly agreed to the workers’ conditions, I’m glad this was settled without me having to do anything.”
