Snip: Their accusations include:

As few as four hours of work a week at $7.25 an hour, with exorbitant housing deductions that brought their net pay far below minimum wage;

Shifts as long as 25 hours with no overtime pay;

Being packed into employer-owned basement housing, up to eight students to a room, for $300 each per month;

Threats to cut hours further and surprise home visits from the employer and McDonald's labor recruiter to suppress complaints; and

Being made to re-label expired salads as fresh and to keep unsold burgers that should have been disposed after 30 minutes up for sale for up to six hours.
