McDonald's Closes Russian Outlet

McDonald's has permanently closed a restaurant for the first time in its 25-year history in Russia. The restaurant, located south of Moscow, was closed after McDonald's and the property's owner failed to agree on rental payments.

McDonald Raises Wage Rates for Employees of the Fast-Food Operations

McDonald announced that it is raising wages by $1.00 over local minimum wage rates for employees of the fast-food operations it directly owns is a modest gesture that will boost pay a little for a small number of the hundreds of thousands of men and women who are trying to make a living selling McDonald's food and burnishing McDonald's brand. Even this action would not have happened without the courageous advocacy of fast-food workers around the country who, in their Fight for $15, are raising public awareness of the costs of low wages and raising the stakes for big companies that can, but won't, raise workers' pay.

McDonald's Corporation Announces Board Appointments

McDonald's Corporation announced that the company's Board of Directors elected Stephen J. Easterbrook as a Director of the company, effective March 1, 2015. The Board also elected Mr. Easterbrook as Chairman of the Executive Committee of the Board, effective March 1, 2015.
