Fast-food workers from three states are suing McDonald's, claiming a variety of wage theft practices, including forcing workers to clock out but remain at work, docking pay to purchase company-required uniforms and stiffing employees on overtime.

I wish we had a petition to sign. My son worked for McD's one summer, it was the most hellish experience of his life. He had claimed he wanted to "drop out" of college for one semester, that job made him head right back to school.

These worker's never knew what the laws and their right's were till now. Most worker;s are given uniform's and turn them in each week to be cleaned. but this did not happen. Some worker's are scheduled to work and then when they get there are asked to go home things are slow too!! when they are asked to be there at certain time and have to stand and not clock in they should be paid for so many hours like 2-4 for being there when scheduled. NO ONE SHOULD NEVER EVER WORK OFF THE CLOCK!!! The companies love that! if you would be injured they would say you weren't on the clock you are in the wrong it's all on you! Manager's can be terrible. Just a few days ago it had been on the news a manager has people working overtime all hours and had them living in his basement. Paying them less than minimum wage and charging them for living in his house in the basement. Glad they finally spoke up!! McDonald's is Responsible for their manager's they hired them!!
Thank you Freya
