McDonald’s franchises in three states are being accused of wage theft as thousands of minimum-wage employees are forced to work off the clock, forgo overtime, and allow hours to be taken off of their time cards. While current legal action is only being taken in California, Michigan, and New York, critics of the company and its employment practices suggest these problems are endemic.
Issues regarding wages and hours are increasingly common and, as more people enter into lower-paying jobs, look to remain steadily on course. This does not make them okay. When you are cheated out of your wages or forced to deal with unfair and unethical employment practices, you need an aggressive attorney on your side.
