Union activists targeted 60 McDonald's restaurants after the corporation drew attention to itself. The Oak Brook-based corporation sent a memo in November asking franchisees to oppose card-check initiatives by the union.
Rosa Salto was intent on educating the server about his employer. She stressed that McDonald's chief executive makes about 770 times what the cashier is making and that the corporation wanted to keep unions out of its shops. "Did you know that? ... Are you OK with that?" the representative of the Service Employees International Union pushed. Restaurant workers played it straight, not acknowledging the questions posed by Salto and about 25 other union representatives. - CHICAGO SUN-TIMES
