McDonald's McPressure: Employees Told to Vote GOP or Else

McDonald's owner Paul Siegfried handed employees more than their paychecks. It was some political McPressure in the battleground state of Ohio.

Included with the paychecks from the Canton, Ohio, McDonald's were handbills stating that if the GOP didn't win the midterms, employee pay and benefits would suffer. The names of three GOP candidates to vote for were included. One employee sent the material to a lawyer. Outed, Siegfried backed down and apologized. McDonald's issued a statement that it had not been aware of the material and such distribution was not part of company policy.
