McDonald’s is the first job for many people. The wages aren’t high and they tend to hire people without a lot of experience for many of their positions. This is fabulous and they should be praised for giving people their first chance.
However, there’s a downside to this: inexperience matters at work. It’s easy enough to learn how to make hamburgers and fries, but it’s not quite so easy to learn how to navigate a world of work. The result of that can mean that many employees are easy targets for sexual harassers.
The New York Times reports that Times Up Legal Defense Fund, the ACLU, and Fight for $15, combined forces to file a total of 23 new complaints against McDonald’s. 20 of these are complaints to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and three are civil lawsuits. All are of concern to McDonald’s.
