Ruth Milkman Featured in NY Times on the 'McDonald's Challenge'
In a New York Times feature published this week, Professor Ruth Milkman (Sociology) commented on efforts to raise wages and organize workers at McDonald’s and other fast-food chains abroad.
The union-led push to spotlight McDonald’s in overseas markets, where the chain’s operations have been more lucrative, may also serve to increase domestic bargaining power.
“The approach is to throw everything out there and see what sticks,” said Milkman, a scholar of labor and labor movements.
