On a different subject can you provide info on the SMITH family LP in California where MCD gave 800 employees over
3 million dollars. No one said anything at the last co-op meeting I thought the GM or QSCVP would be happy to discuss
what happened. Seeng we are all on the same team and sit on that 3 legged stool. ( with that 1 short leg).

I don't think you can expect McDonald's executives to discuss such litigation or the settlement.

And, keep in mind, this all happened in California. This state doesn't really have a legal system. It's a state entirely run by one political party and that party is simply a puppet of union thugs.

There's no good news in this case for McDonald's Operators and this settlement does not prove that McDonald's Corp. is a joint employer. Nor does it prove the Operator did anything wrong but is probably just a victim of litigation funded by organized labor.
