McDonald's workers in US strike again over harassment

Popular News

 

McDonald's workers walked out at restaurants in 12 US cities in protest at the fast food giant's handling of sexual harassment claims.

Organisers, who have held five strikes over harassment since 2018, say McDonald's has "largely ignored" frontline workers who complain.

Cashiers and cooks walked out in Chicago, Detroit, Houston and Miami among other places on Tuesday.

The chain said "sexual harassment and assault have no place" at McDonald's.

It is not clear how many in total have joined the strike, reports BBC.

According to Fight for $15, the campaign group organising the action, workers have filed more than 50 complaints and lawsuits alleging harassment at corporate-owned and franchise McDonald's outlets since 2016.
