Does the “super flu” come with your super-size fries? Plus: 2nd Paid Sick Days Hall of Shame event likely

We’ve been hearing from workers at several downtown fast food franchises – who handle thousands of meals a day – that their employers don’t provide paid sick time.

So we’ve sent certified letters to the parent corporations of local Jimmy John’s (1) and McDonald’s (1) (2) outlets asking this: Is paid sick time universally available to all of your employees – including those who prepare/handle food, and those who work part-time/seasonally?

We’ll be sure to know whether we receive any response.

It looks like we’ll have another Paid Sick Days Hall of Shame event next Wednesday at 12:30 p.m. – so keep your calendars clear, and we’ll get the details to you next week.
