Mcdonald's plans strike to raise awareness for sexual harassment

McDonald's workers walk out in 10 US cities over 'sexual harassment epidemic'

The women are demanding policies and procedures to prevent and educate about sexual harassment, as well as a safety hotline and a zero tolerance policy for harassment. "I felt like I was outside my own body, watching what was happening", she said in a complaint filed with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). "We have policies, procedures and training in place that are specifically created to prevent sexual harassment at our company and company-owned restaurants, and we firmly believe that our franchisees share this commitment".

McDonald's workers in Kansas City joined a nationwide strike Tuesday protesting sexual harassment within the fast food chain. She was told she was acting "like a little girl" and was childish to complain about it.

The complaints are in line with similar allegations filed with the EEOC in 2016, when hourly workers in eight states came forward to allege their hours had been cut and their complaints went ignored after they notified supervisors of various forms of harassment on the job. "To ensure we are doing all that can be done, we have engaged experts in the areas of prevention and response including, RAINN, to evolve our policies so everyone who works at McDonald's does so in a secure environment every day".

"It's sad that we have to walk off the job in order to be treated with respect at McDonald's, but we're not going to stay quiet while the company ignores the harassment we're facing", Harrell said in a statement.

After these incidents another co-worker took her into the men's bathroom, pinned her against a wall, exposed himself and tried to have sex with her. Since fast food frequently employs young people (often as their first job), numerous victims are teenagers.

"Messi, like all of us, is really motivated to win big things (this season), and the Champions League is one of them". It will be very hard for us, but I am incredibly excited about it.

In the filing, one 20-year-old woman in Durham, North Carolina, reported that a shift manager once told her he wanted to have a threesome with her and a co-worker; another manager repeatedly called her "hot ass", "hot pants" and "hot mama". Harrell, who makes $8.15 an hour, said she and many of her colleagues were skeptical of the company's commitment to combating harassment. Lawson said, "I'm a single mom, I want to set the right example for my child by speaking out about something that happened to me that is wrong".

The strike takes place in 10 cities.

Union-backed organizations, including Fight for $15, are mounting pressure against the restaurant chain to provide better working conditions and minimum $15 an hour wages.

In Chicago, another worker said she was sacked after she reported her manager for sexual harassment, according to NWLC. "The failure to tackle this scourge should compel workers, customers and allies to demand real change and back this strike".
