Minimum Wage Moves To House Vote

McDonald’s Corp., in a reversal of company policy, said it no longer will lobby against minimum-pay hikes in the U.S.

“Going forward, McDonald’s Corporation will not use our resources, including lobbyists or staff, to oppose minimum wage increases at the federal, state or local levels,” Genna Gent, the company’s vice president of U.S. government relations, said in a letter sent Tuesday to the National Restaurant Association. “Nor will we participate in association advocacy efforts designed expressly to defeat wage increases.”
