Fast Food Employees Trying To Unionize

This Bloomberg video certainly makes the case of the McDonald’s employees look pretty solid. While this was shot in Chicago I know the same attempts to unionize have been made in NYC.

(Bloomberg) Tyree Johnson scrubs himself with a bar of soap in a McDonald’s (MCD) bathroom and puts on fresh deodorant. He stashes his toiletries in a Kenneth Cole bag, a gift from his mother who works the counter at Macy’s, and hops on an El train. His destination: another McDonald’s.

 Johnson isn’t one of Chicago’s many homeless people who seek shelter in fast-food joints. He’s a McDonald’s employee, at both stores — one in the Loop, the other about a mile away in the shadow of Holy Name Cathedral.
