A group of employees have come together to take action against McDonald's.
They believe, namely, that they daily run the risk of being exposed to violence when they are at work.

They do not believe that McDonald's has been good enough to protect those employees against the risk of being exposed to violence during a shift.
A risk, which, according to the employees is very serious.
They point out, for example, that a McDonald's employee in Chicago is forced to call 911 (the emergency red.) the whole 20 times a day because of situations where they are at risk under a guard.
It writes the USA Today.
In the suit, describes the 17 employees of different situations where they have experienced violence in the working hours. Sekabet
the Incidents, which are described, include the fol.a. a customer, who threatened employees with a gun, a customer who beat up a staff member in the head with a floor-is-slippery-sign, as well as a customer, there urinerede on an employee.
McDonald's says even in connection with the case, that they take their responsibility to create a safe working environment very seriously and that is precisely why provides training programs that can help to create a sense of security.
The claim is Sonia Acuña, which is one of the McDonald's employees who have started court proceedings against burgerrestauranten, do not agree.
