Fast-food Protests Target ‘Wage Theft’

Fast-food protests are planned for several U.S. cities Tuesday as labor organizers look to bring attention to practices they say illegally deprive workers of their wages.

The protests are planned for about 30 cities, but it’s not clear what the scope of the turnout will be. It’s part of an ongoing push by labor groups to build support for pay of $15 an hour and the right to unionize.

Organizers have also been referring workers to attorneys, who filed lawsuits in three states last week saying McDonald’s was stealing their wages.
McDonald’s Corp. said it planned to investigate the allegations and take necessary actions. A representative for the company, based in Oak Brook, Ill., did not immediately provide comment on the planned protests.
