Wage theft is when an employer doesn’t pay for hours worked. With McDonald’s the practice is widespread, including in Oakland. Alameda County has four new cases involving potentially thousands of workers. Employees basically have been pressured to work off the clock for no pay.
If income inequality bothers you and the fact that corporations regularly break the law also bothers you please sign this petition here.

MCDONALD’S: STOP THEFT OF WORKER PAY
According to the Huffington Post, McDonald’s "Billion-Dollar Profit Is Awkwardly Close To The Amount it Costs Taxpayers Every Year” McDonald’s raked in 1.5 billion in profits in the third quarter (5.5 billion annually). The cost of public subsidies to McDonald’s employees was $1.2 billion. On top of paying low-wages and receiving what is essentially a government hand-out, McDonald’s is now being sued in 4 class-action lawsuits in California (more across the country) with 1,000s of workers including many in the East Bay who assert they have not been fairly compensated for hours worked. What this means is people have not been given legal breaks or forced to work off the clock without pay. Please show your support of workers in the East Bay by signing this petition:

After much deep thought and soul-searching I am now publicly ready to announce that I will not be bringing my world-class skiing and patented triple Salchow jump ice skating moves to the Soichi Olympics. This secret queer lesbian is staying home.
