Paid sick days supporters outside McDonald's on 3rd and Pine in downtown Seattle

On Wednesday, McDonald’s joined Starbucks and Jimmy John’s in the Paid Sick Days Hall of Shame, representing yet another billion dollar corporation that does not allow its frontline workers to earn paid sick days.

Paid sick days supporters gathered outside the McDonald’s on 3rd and Pine in downtown Seattle to bring attention to the 190,000 people working in Seattle without paid sick days.

But they were soon joined by a counter-protestor, who argued paid sick days would be bad for him. Watch it here:
