McDonald’s workers file complaints demanding more coronavirus protections
Workers at two California McDonald’s locations filed complaints with the California Division of Occupational Safety and Health this week alleging that their employers have created hazardous conditions that put them at risk of the coronavirus. The complaints come as more than 700 fast food workers, primarily at McDonald’s restaurants, have gone on strike across the country... Striking fast food workers say their employers are not doing enough to protect them from getting sick or compensating them for the added risk of working during the coronavirus. In some stores, workers say McDonald’s is not even providing sufficient soap or hand sanitizer, much less masks. They are concerned about their access to paid time off to self-quarantine.
