Mr. Mwaffak Kanjee General Manager and Vice President McDonalds New York Metro Region 111 Wood Avenue South, Suite 400 Iselin, NJ 08830 Dear Mr. Kanjee: I am writing to urge you and the McDonalds Corporation to take specific action with respect to wage theft occurring at McDonalds franchises in New York City, and throughout the country. I have been disturbed by recent reports about fast food employees forced to work off the clock and through breaks, and instances of
skimming hours off employees’ checks.
I have added my voice to the growing chorus of advocates and leaders calling for livable wages for fast food employees. It is my firm belief that an employee working full-time should be able to support him or herself without having to ask the government
 and fellow taxpayers
 for food stamps and other forms of public assistance simply to survive. This is basic justice. Although I remain committed to this broader principle, I write today about wage theft, a distinct but related issue that negatively impacts fast food workers. To steal wages, understate hours or deny required breaks from workers who are already underpaid is plainly unacceptable. Notwithstanding our likely disagreement about the wages paid to
McDonalds’ employees, I would hope that you and I can agree that these practices
should stop immediately. For this reason, I am imploring you and the McDonalds Corporation to initiate a new policy to prevent wage theft and report progress on this critical issue. In addition, I would like to use this opportunity to meet with representatives of the McDonalds Corporation to discuss this issue further. I hope that you and the McDonalds Corporation seriously consider this issue
 and my invitation to meet
 and join us in our efforts to end wage theft. Sincerely, Letitia James Public Advocate of the City of New York
