McDonald’s worker protests

It is reported that nearly hundreds of McDonald’s workers and supporters have gathered in the front of the McDonald’s headquarters before conducting up the company’s annual shareholder meeting. The strike is for demanding a rise in their wages from $9 to $15 per hour.

Many people have travelled across many places like New York, Tampa and Philadelphia to get the signatures of a million people for the petition raising the minimum wage to pay for the workers. Now the McDonald’s is urging its shareholders to vote against this move. McDonald’s has reported that they are on the move of evaluating the advisory board to determine what is to be done in accordance with this.
