August 5, 2014

Wiggin and Dana Partner Dean Fournaris was quoted in an August 5, 2014 The Legal Intelligencer article titled, "NLRB's McDonald's Ruling has Local General Counsel Concerned."

In the article, Dean discusses the implications of the NLRB's decision, commenting that the ruling "threatens the franchise model" and hurts small businesses. He also comments on why most fast-food chains cannot afford the types of concessions, like a minimum wage increase, that workers are seeking, saying that "forcing that increase would result in widespread unemployment because it would make the investment in technology that replaces human workers look more economical than paying increased labor costs."
