It's always nice when the law actually does what its supposed to and sides with the people getting unconscionably screwed by large corporations. We've got a good example of one of those instances today.
Remember the wage lawsuits filed against McDonald's recently by employees alleging that various locations had just straight-up stolen from them? Well, it turns out, at least one lawsuit, in NYC, has already been settled, to the tune of $500,000 spread out among over 1600 workers. Most of the violations occurred either as unpaid overtime, or when employees were forced to work off-the-clock — and it did not take long for the NY Attorney General's office to finish their investigation and come back with a report that read as the legal equivalent of "holy shit, what the fuck, McDonald's?" Could this be a sign of further legal victories to come? One can only hope.
