    McDonald’s workers across the United States are on strike to protest sexual harassment

    Responding to rampant alleged sexual misconduct and emboldened by the #MeToo movement taking root nationally, McDonald’s workers across 10 U.S. cities abandoned their restaurants at lunchtime Tuesday to take part in what is being hailed as the first multi-state strike to specifically target sexual harassment.

    Just because you pay them buttons doesnt mean that is what they are worth.Good luck to these workers in their struggle.

    I see a lot of job openings becoming available very soon in that business.

    not really. They are having a hard time filling those positions now.

    A local franchise near where I work told me he had to cut back hours because he can't find enough people to man his store.

    well, if this is true, I wish them the best of luck, however the proper way to solve this would be to contact the authorities. This will prevent mcd from moving managers around and people will see that there is real consequences to your actions.

    No irony to see. Nothing to do with Trump, and he'll have us back in a recession.

    You think the One Percenters like the wage slaves striking for better treatment?

    Because that worked so well with the Catholic Church.

    we can't even put 97% of rapists in jail, you think that the police are going to waste time with someone copping a feel or telling a dirty joke.

    you are such an incredibly well trained sheep.

    sadly, you will never get to wear the bell.

    so if the cops keep getting calls, from one place, you think they will never show up.


    you are such an ignorant person.

    Guy, what I am is pragmatic. I didn't think Clinton was responsible for his awesome economy, and I don't think Trump is responsible for this one.

    Economies are largely cyclical.

    His debts and tariffs will have the economy back in the ditch soon enough.

    Nine out of the last ten recessions have happened when Republicans were in charge. It's not a bug, it's a design feature.
