July 19, 2013

A McDonald's worker fainted today at New York City's 181st Street and Broadway location after working in the kitchen without air conditioning for several hours. The woman felt ill and asked to leave but says her boss wouldn't allow her to go home because there was no backup. Tweets and photos (see after the jump) surfaced of the woman leaving with paramedics. Outraged by the working conditions, fellow workers walked off the job in protest.
