McDonald's sued over worker pay

NEW YORK- Lawsuits were filed this week against McDonald's claiming the fast-food chain and some franchises deliberately avoid paying workers what they're owed.

Suits in three states detail violations including making workers wait to clock in and making them pay for their own uniforms.

It's seen as the latest move to call attention to pay practices in the fast-food and other low paying industries.

The legal action came on the same day President Obama was expected to call for stricter rules on overtime pay.

McDonald's says its investigating the claims and would take any necessary actions.

The President, leading Democrats and labor unions are also pushing to raise the federal minimum wage to $10.10 an hour from the current $7.25.
