Staff ‘forced to work for free’, McDonald’s class action claims
McDonald’s has been accused of working on a “broken business model” and exploiting worker’s shifts in a wide-ranging class action brought against the fast food giant.
The Shop Distributive and Allied Employees Association brought the case against McDonald’s Wednesday, representing about 25,000 managers and supervisors across 1000 national stores.
SDA National Secretary Gerard Dwyer told Millsy and Karl on 6PR Breakfast McDonald’s are setting an unfortunate standard as one of Australia’s biggest employers.
“These are people wanting to build a career path in the sector, and here they are being required to work unpaid. How would make them feel?” Mr Dwyer said.
