An attack on a McDonald's employee went viral earlier in January — but the employee seen in the video is far from the only fast-food worker dealing with violence at work.




Fast-food and other chain-restaurant workers routinely face dangerous conditions, with 87% saying they have been injured at least once while on the job in the previous year.




As fast-food workers strike and Starbucks installs syringe-disposal boxes to protect workers, fast-food chains' sometimes dangerous conditions are being thrust into the spotlight.



In the fast-food industry, a chain lives or dies based on the waiters, baristas, and cashiers it hires.
These workers often encounter routine risks, violence, and injuries while on the job. And, they are increasingly unwilling to stay silent on the dangers of the fast-food industry.
For example, take Yasmine James. The 20-year-old McDonald's employee was attacked by a male customer while at work in early January. Another customer in the St. Petersburg, Florida, McDonald's recorded video as the man reached across the counter and grabbed James by her shirt, dragging her toward him.
