McDonald’s: Employees Scared To Work In Chicago

Lori Lightfoot

( – You know crime is out of control when even McDonald’s employees are too afraid to work in the neighborhoods where they live and are employed.

And that is exactly what is happening in the once great city of Chicago.

As Newsmax tells the tale in “McDonald’s CEO Warns Mayor Lightfoot: Chicago Crime Is a ‘Crisis’“:

“The crime “crisis” in Chicago has gotten so bad under Democrat Mayor Lori Lightfoot that McDonald’s CEO Chris Kempczinski is saying staff is scared to come to work.

‘Everywhere I go, I’m confronted by the same question: ‘What’s going on in Chicago?” Kempczinski told the Economic Club of Chicago, The Wall Street Journal reported. ‘There is a general sense out there that our city is in crisis.’

Kempczinski is calling on Lightfoot to address crime in the city that houses the fast-food giant’s corporate headquarters.” [emphasis added]

Getting more specific, the CEO stated:

“‘We see every single day in our restaurants what’s happening at society at large,’ Kempczinski said. ‘It’s not going to be something that McDonald’s can solve on its own. We need to be able to do it with the public sector as well.’

Chicago’s crime rate is up 38% in 2022 over last year, and thefts are up 65%.” [emphasis added]
