McDonald’s workers in more than 18 cities have filed complaints about workplace hazards. Employees cite a continued lack of protective equipment for handling hot grills, and say they have been burned numerous times while cleaning and cooking.
Public pressure is building for an ongoing campaign to increase pay to $15 per hour, and these complaints are the latest move to push the employer. Spearheaded by the Service Employees International Union, the efforts started more than 2 years ago.
In the claim one worker states that he was told by a manager to put mayonnaise on a burn. The complaints also detail a lack of training, and slip falls from wet floors.
The OSHA have confirmed receipt of these claims.
