McDonald's Raises Wage by $1 an hour, Workers say not Enough

McDonald, McDonald wages, McDonald slave

Ronald McDonald won't happy about this news. McDonald's announced that they will be increasing the wages for their 90,000 employees of about at least $1 an hour more than the minimum wage. However, workers and labor groups are not happy about the increase they say that the pay-increase plan is too little for too few people. Since the pay hike will not cover the employees at franchises, which make up 90% of McDonald's roughly 14,000 U.S. stores. The pay hike will start July 1.

Organizers are planning a massive rally scheduled on April 15, they are fighting for a $15 hourly minimum wage.

The company said that by the end of 2016, the average hourly wage for McDonald's workers at those stores will be more than $10 an hour, up from $9 an hour.
