I'm Slavin' It! McDonald's minimum wage crisis reaches tipping point as mass labor protests begin

By Adams: (NaturalNews) Already losing market share to more innovative restaurants that are dropping GMOs (Chipotle) and toxic chemical ingredients (Panera), McDonald's is about to be hit with a massive worker protest.

"McDonald's workers will gatecrash the burger company's shareholder meeting later this month with 'the biggest ever protest' demanding an end to 'poverty wages' paid to many of its 420,000 staff," reports The Guardian.
