retail news in context, analysis with attitude

ABC News reports that a McDonald's franchisee is being sued by a former employee of a Pennsylvania store, who says that "she was required to receive her wages through a debit card that charged fees, resulting in some hourly employees receiving less than minimum wage." The woman says that "she and other workers were paid through a JPMorgan Chase Payroll Card, which has a $1.50 fee for ATM withdrawals, a $10 inactivity fee after 90 days, and a 75 cent online payment fee per transaction and other fees."

Lawyers in the case are hoping to have it classified as a class action. Attorneys for the defendants have not commented, saying they have not yet seen the complaint.
KC's View:
We haven't heard both sides of the case, but on the face of it, this hardly seems fair.
