Don’t the McDonald’s apple pies just come prepackaged and are quickly reheated? And we have these pigs brawling over who has to do it? Not only that, these creatures are demanding $15 and hour minimum wage? Yeah, we think a kiosk can dispense that pie, thanks.
It started with apple pies and ended with fisticuffs.
A fight broke out between two female employees at a McDonald’s in South Carolina at about 10pm on Wednesday night, reportedly after a row over making pies.
The fight ensued after one of the women, 30, asked her 25-year-old female colleague to start frying a new batch of pies, Chester County investigators said.
In dramatic footage captured by a customer, the women can be seen wrestling behind the counter as other employees try to pull them apart.
‘I’m thinking, “oh man something’s about to really happen right now”,’ the customer, Noah Smith, told 13 News Now.
‘She runs back over there and does this like flying punch and hits the lady. And that’s when it all went down.’
The two women began arguing when one woman told the other to leave the store and that she would cover the rest of her shift, 13 News Now reported.
But the younger woman – who was becoming increasingly angry – refused her colleague’s offer to leave.
Investigators added that the younger woman’s brother – who works at the store – also told her to leave, but she again refused.
The younger woman then apparently hit the staffer that asked her to make the apple pies. It’s unclear whether any charges will be filed but one was seriously injured, police said.
The Fight for $15 movement announced plans Thursday to march on McDonald’s corporate headquarters in opposition to the company and low wages.
McDonald’s has been accused on numerous occasions of taking advantage of workers by paying them low wages. The Fight for $15 movement has been at the forefront of the push to enact a higher minimum wage. The movement announced plans to march against the company May 25 at its corporate headquarters in Illinois.
“FightFor15 is marching on McDonald’s HQ next week to fight low pay and the race to the bottom,” a movement organizer said in a text message to supporters, which was obtained by The Daily Caller News Foundation. “We’re going to share your message at the huge protest Wednesday.”
Supporters were encouraged to share their stories about how low wages have impacted them. The protest will coincide will McDonald’s annual shareholders’ meeting, which is scheduled for the following day. Fight for $15 has held numerous protest against McDonald’s over the years alongside a handful of other large corporations.
