"You have workers that have been going into McDonald's where a bullet hole is through their walls. You have workers where there is violence through the store, and customers are getting violent with us. So how do we protect ourselves as fast food workers?"

McDonald's workers in Chicago say they feel unsafe at work after witnessing gunfire and other acts of violence inside their restaurants.
A group of employees say such incidents are enough to constitute a pattern of regular on-the-job violence they want the company to address across the U.S.
In a complaint filed with the Occupational Safety and Health Administration on Monday, the workers at one location described being threatened with guns, attacked with hot coffee and having to dodge food thrown by a disturbed customer.
Workers and their supporters protested outside a store on Chicago's South Side this morning in advance of the McDonald's shareholders' meeting being held in Dallas this week.
There is still a bullet hole in the wall of the South Side McDonald's where cashier Tatiana McCoy works. She says she was "really, really scared" after witnessing the gunfire, but that managers asked employees to keep working.
