McDonald’s can't dodge its illegal treatment of workers

Corporate executives and industry lobbyists started cheering this month before the ink had even dried on a decision by the Trump administration’s National Labor Relations Board overturning an Obama-era “joint employer” standard.
This standard, they had feared, would make it easier for employees to hold fast-food chains accountable for violating the rights of workers employed by those chains’ franchisees or contractors like staffing agencies.
The ruling is just the latest example of how the Trump administration has favored corporations over working people. But the world’s biggest fast-food chain – McDonald’s – has not been spared from its day in court.
