McDonald's workers make sexual harassment complaints

Ten workers at McDonald's fast food franchises in the US have filed complaints of sexual harassment against the firm. Similar harassment claims were lodged against McDonald's two years ago. The latest complaints, which were filed with the US Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, were brought on behalf of the workers by the campaign group The Fight for $15. It says that the workers - based in cities such as Miami, Los Angeles and Detroit - were ignored or mocked when they reported instances of sexual harassment to their managers. "McDonald's Corporation takes allegations of sexual harassment very seriously and are confident our independent franchisees who own and operate approximately 90% of our 14,000 US restaurants will do the same." The Fight for $15, which has long urged McDonald's to set a $15 minimum wage, says it now plans to "Challenge widespread sexual harassment" against McDonald's workers across the US. The group has set up a hotline and encouraged other workers to contact them to have their complaints reviewed by lawyers.
