Three McDonalds in Virginia are serving up a side of racism and sexism with their working conditions, according to a lawsuit by ten former employees. In addition to being told that there are too many black people in the store, called ghetto, and inappropriate touching of female employees, nine African-American and one Latino workers were replaced with white workers. When they complained to the corporate headquarters, they were told to take it up with their franchise bosses who were the very ones that fired them. Being that McDonalds regulates all aspects of a franchise from pay to smile to service, you can’t have your McFlurry and eat it too.
Team Blackness also discussed another police shooting, this time in Bridgeton, NJ; new laws surrounding committing people with mental illness; and a new anti-abortion bill to celebrate the anniversary of Roe. v. Wade.
