Democrats Urge McDonald’s to Raise Store Workers’ Wages

Democrat members of the U.S. Congress are urging McDonald’s Corp. and other fast-food chains to raise wages for store workers.

“Too many hard-working families are being forced to depend on poverty-level wages,” 53 members of Congress wrote in a letter being mailed today to restaurant executives including McDonald’s Chief Executive Officer Don Thompson. “Paying fair wages and putting more spending money in the hands of consumers will strengthen our economy.”
