Huff PoShelley Lynn, a former prostitute and employee of the Las Vegas Chicken Ranch brothel, has claimed in a federal court complaint that McDonald’s played a role in her becoming a sex worker, the Consumerist reports. Lynn is suing McDonald’s along with her ex-husband and his company Ivernia, which owned the local McDonald’s franchise where Lynn was employed as a cashier 20 years ago, according to the complaint obtained by Courthouse News Service. Handley “emotionally and psychologically” coerced Lynn into prostitution in part because McDonald’s paid her minimum wage, offered a poor health care plans and no benefits and had no system for filing grievances against employers who abused their power, according to the complaint. All of these factors allowed Handley, her employer when the two began dating, to unjustly terminate her employment and browbeat her into sex work, Lynn claims.  ynn is suing McDonald’s for lost wages as well as a number of damages, according to the Consumerist. According to the career and workplace review site Glassdoor, the average hourly pay for McDonald’s crew members is $7.64 per hour, or around $15,000 per year. In comparison, Taco Bell paid an average of $7.83 per hour, Wendy’s paid $7.66 per hour and Burger King paid $8 per hour.

Simple cause and effect, folks. If you pay me $7.64 an hour to make Big Macs and you don’t provide a suitable chain of command to blow the whistle on inappropriate McDonald’s behavior, you leave me with no choice but to take dick for a living for the next 20 years. There’s only so much a woman can take before she reaches her breaking point. Only so many burgers you can flip for 7 bucks an hour until you suck dick on the streets. You don’t see Wendy’s employees and BK employees and Taco Bell employees turning tricks. Probably because they all get paid more per hour and the human resources department has a system for filing grievances. Fuck I mean I don’t even think Kentucky Fried Chicken workers turn to a life of prostitution and they’re just a shade above being homeless.

Just a bad, bad look for Ronald McDonald and company. “Come intern for McDonald’s! We’ll groom you to become a street walking prostitute! Ba da, bop bop baaaaa!”
