McDonald's Employees Told To Vote Republican

The owner of several McDonald's chains in Ohio inserted a pamphlet into employees' last paychecks that said if they did not vote Republican in the upcoming Midterm elections, their pay and benefits would be affected.
Paul Siegfried, owner of several McDonald's chains in Ohio, attempted to persuade his employees on how to vote by inserting a pamphlet into their paychecks this month, the New York Times said.
The pamphlet mentioned three specific Republican candidates that employees were supposed to vote for. The pamphlet said that if the employees did not, their pay and benefits would be threatened, the New York Daily News said.
One employee forwarded the pamphlet to an attorney out of anger, the New York Daily News said.
McDonald's headquarters said that Siegfried's actions were not a representation of company beliefs. Siegfried issued an apology via a statement made by a spokesman, the New York Times said.
