McDonald’s Pockets $100 Million Dollar Windfall from GOP Tax Bill in Single Quarter, Refuses to Pay Workers Living Wage

Meanwhile, McDonald’s CEO awarded massive 42 percent raise, bringing his annual compensation to $21.7 million

Washington, D.C. — Not One Penny spokesperson Tim Hogan released the following statement in advance of McDonald’s annual meeting on McDonald’s refusing to pay its workers a living wage after raking in over $100 million dollars from the GOP tax bill in Q1 of 2018:

“What makes McDonald’s refusal to pay its workers a living wage even more shocking is the fact that the company pocketed over $100 million as a result of the GOP tax bill in only one quarter. Rather than use these massive tax breaks to provide living wages for its employees who work hard to make ends meet, McDonald’s chose to award its CEO with a massive 42 percent increase in executive compensation. We shouldn’t be surprised at all that President Trump’s favorite food chain is leaving working Americans in the dust.”
