McDonald's shares responsibility for working conditions with its franchisees who operate roughly 90 percent of its restaurants, according to the National Labor Relations Board.

The decision, discussed Tuesday with McDonald’s and parties, is significant because McDonald’s has long maintained that its franchisees are independent owner-operators who set their own policies, including wages.

The Oak Brook-based hamburger chain quickly came out against the decision.

(excerpt)
"Just because people in positions of authority are stupid, it doesn’t mean you have to go along with it." —Arlo Guthrie

"In the excitement of great popular elections, deciding the policy of the country, and its vast patronage, frauds will be committed, if a chance is given for them." —Richard Henry Dana, Jr.
