NLRB recognizes McDonalds as joint employer
This means the corporation is jointly responsible for how franchises treat employees. Which is awesome news.
Standard industry sophistry ensues:
"David French, senior vice president with the National Retail Federation, called the decision “outrageous.” “It is just further evidence that the N.L.R.B. has lost all credibility as a government agency established to protect workers and is now just a government agency that serves as an adjunct for organized labor…."
Note the inability to conceive that organized labor is also involved in protecting workers.
The National Labor Relations Board was set up to help enforce labor law and mediate disputes between workers, their union reps, and businesses. It is met with fury every time it actually does this.
