The McDonald’s CEO said it himself this January: McDonald’s would be “just fine” if the minimum wage went up.
So…why are they making announcements about “raises” for some workers in only 5% of their stores?
Because it’s all marketing. And workers are calling BS. McDonald’s paid out billions to shareholders in 2020 and at the same time working families are on the brink of homelessness – working full time and still not able to make ends meet.

That’s why workers are going on STRIKE on Wednesday as McDonald’s convenes its annual shareholders meeting. McDonald’s isn’t going to turn around and do the right thing unless people turn up and demand that they give ALL workers $15 and a seat at the table.
