It’s fair to say that very few people out there would ever want to work for a place like McDonald’s. It’s fast paced, hot, greasy, and gives nothing but surly customers and terrible wages. It should be a job for kids in school looking to earn spending money, but in hard times, you got to take whatever job you can find. One woman from California has a claim in federal court stating that working for the fast food chain had forced her to lead the life of a prostitute.
Shelly Lynn worked for McDonald’s in the early 80’s, and began dating her boss, whom she eventually married. Her boss, Keith Handley, eventually convinced the superiors to fire her for insubordination, so he could convince Lynn to become a prostitute. Lynn claims that McDonald’s is at fault because they did not have any way for an employee to file a grievance or contest her firing. Lynn is suing Keith Handley, his company Ivernia, and McDonald’s USA for “lost wages, special damages, compensatory damages, and punitive damages for sex trafficking, negligent retention and supervision of franchisees, and racketeering.”
