Tens of thousands of California fast-food workers at corporate-owned McDonald’s restaurants in California will be getting a cut of the $26 million class action lawsuit over years-old allegations of wage theft.
On average, each employee can expect to receive about $330, though some may have as much as $4,000 coming to them.
Business Insider reports the lawsuit was first filed seven years ago, with the corporation accused of engaging in numerous illegal practices to scam workers of fair wages, including:
- Not paying all wages when they were due.
- Not providing rest and meal breaks for workers.
- Not paying overtime wages.
- Not paying minimum wages.
