McDonald's hit by lawsuits claiming it steals wages
Seven suits filed in different states
(Reuters) - Several lawsuits were filed this week against McDonald's Corp by fast-food workers, alleging the hamburger chain was systematically stealing their wages.
The seven suits, filed Wednesday and Thursday in New York, California and Michigan, allege that the fast-food giant hasn't paid the employees for off-the-clock work, has denied them time for a meal or break, cheated them of overtime pay, and hasn't compensated them for the care of their uniforms.
