Working Lunch: Fight for $15 targets restaurants over sexual harassment

On this episode of the Working Lunch podcast, the Align crew examines organized labor’s tie to lawsuits against McDonald’s over sexual harassment complaints and why smaller restaurant companies should pay attention to the Fight for $15 strategy.

Stay tuned for the legislative scorecard and the answer to the question—Who has the better burger: McDonald’s Signature Series, Five Guys or Shake Shack?
