In the US, 52 dark-skinned entrepreneurs filed a lawsuit against McDonald’s due to discrimination

In the US, 52 former McDonald’s fast-food franchises have filed a class-action lawsuit against the company. Dark-skinned entrepreneurs claim to have been subjected to pacific discrimination and denied the same opportunities as white franchisees, according to USA Today.





According to the owners of the bankrupt establishments, McDonald’s insisted that they open their restaurants in disadvantaged areas of cities with high crime rates, while whites could work in more prestigious and quieter parts of the city. Businessmen note that their expenses have increased due to the provision of additional security. At the same time, restaurants brought in lower-income than similar establishments elsewhere.

The plaintiffs also allege that McDonald's denied them financial support and limited their ability to purchase restaurants in wealthy parts of cities. They believe they have failed because the company sent them on “financial self-defeating missions.”

In total, the restaurant owners who filed the lawsuit owned more than 200 fast food outlets. Each of them insists on compensation for financial damage in the amount of $ 4-5 million.
