Franchisee labor win
The NLRB (National Labor Relations Board, the agency that rules on labor issues) has decided that employees of a franchisee can name the corporate franchisor in complaints, strengthening labor's voice and requiring greater responsibility from corporate giants. It should be good for the franchisees as well to have the franchisor taking responsibility for labor relations. It's astonishing that MacDonalds previously had not been accountable for labor violations in their franchise stores.
