    Tell McDonald’s: Enforce a zero-tolerance policy for sexual harassment.

    Thanks to the serial predator and misogynist at the top of the Republican ticket, sexual assault and harassment are currently front and center in our national dialogue.

    Just last week, a horrifying survey was released showing that 40% of women in the fast food industry experience sexual harassment.1 Workers also reported staying silent for fear of retaliation – and rightfully so. When women report sexual harassment, one in five of them are subsequently denied a raise, given worse schedules, or have their hours cut.2

    McDonald’s restaurants employ more than a million workers.3 It is the second largest employer in the country and has a well-documented and pervasive record of sexual harassment problems in its restaurants.4 If we can make it enforce a zero-tolerance sexual harassment policy now, it will send a powerful message to employers and workers everywhere.

    With Trump publicly bragging about using his power and fame to sexually assault women, it’s time for everyone including iconic corporations such as McDonalds to take action that sends a clear message: Sexual harassment and assault is never okay, and we won’t stand for it.

    McDonald’s workers announced last week that they are filing 15 complaints of sexual harassment against the company and its franchises through the federal Equal Opportunity Commission (EEOC). The complaints describe groping, lewd comments, and solicitations of sex for money from managers and supervisors. It’s sexual harassment, and it’s wrong. In response to the report and the lawsuit, fast food workers across the country have taken action and are calling on McDonald’s to change. We need to stand with them.

    No matter what Trump and his anti-woman right-wing apologists would have us believe, it’s unacceptable for anyone to live in fear of being sexually harassed and assaulted, at work or anywhere.

    It’s time for McDonald’s to fix its sexual harassment problem and help ensure the safety of over a million workers. Let’s make sure the courageous workers who are speaking out know that we have their backs.

    Thank you for your activism.
