Building Bridges: #MeToo: McDonald's Workers Strike to End Sexual Harassment

Emboldened by the #MeToo movement, McDonaldâs workers staged a one-day strike at restaurants in 10 cities to pressure management to take stronger steps against sexual harassment in the workplace. Organizers say it was the first multistate strike in the U.S. specifically targeting sexual harassment. Orleck will analyze the significance of this development in the context of the #MeToo movement, womenâs labor history, and the growing activism and unionism of low wage women workers in the U.S. and around the world.
