What the lawsuit doesn’t address is that companies like Mickey D’s profit wildly from the labor of employees who don’t receive a fare share. Their wages barely allow them to get by.
If you work 8 hours a day 5 days a week your pay should at least be sufficient to live on. Minimum wage currently is not. These workers deserve a greater share for their efforts.
The lawsuit goes on to show that it’s even worse than that. The franchisees and parent corp willfully cheat and underpay the already underpaid.
The alleged violations included unpaid overtime, misrecording of timecards to reduce pay, failure to pay the minimum wage and failure to pay wages owed to employees who quit or were fired. In documenting the alleged violations, the lawsuit goes back to 2010 and asserts that most of the practices continue today.
