Thousands of Cooks and Cashiers To Wage Largest-Ever Protest at McDonald’s Shareholder Meeting

Groups

Oak Brook, Ill. - McDonald’s workers Wednesday and Thursday will wage the largest protests to ever hit the company’s shareholder meeting. Joined by other fast-food cooks and cashiers and clergy from across the country, the workers will call on McDonald’s to invest in the company and its workers, not wealthy hedge fund executives. The protest comes just days after a paper in the Harvard Business Review detailed nearly $30 billion McDonald’s has spent on share buybacks in the last decade, money that could have been spent to raise workers’ wages.
