Suit: McDonald's Wages Put On Costly Debit Card

Posted: Updated:

PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Would you like fees with that?
    
A Pennsylvania woman has filed suit to avoid fees she may be charged to get her McDonald's wages from a debit card.
    
Single mom Natalie Gunshannon has filed suit over bank fees that allegedly include $1.00 to check her balance, $1.50 to withdraw cash and $15 to replace a lost card.
    
The 27-year-old Gunshannon, who lives near Wilkes-Barre, says the JPMorgan Chase payroll card was her only payment option.
    
Her suit names franchise owners Albert and Carol Mueller, who employ about 800 people at 16 McDonald's restaurants in northeastern Pennsylvania.
    
Gunshannon's lawyer, Michael Cefalo, says employers and banks are "squeezing the most vulnerable" workers.
    
In a statement the Muellers say they try to comply with state laws and have many content long-term employees.
    
JPMorgan Chase spokesman Mike Fusco says cash withdrawals are typically free at Chase banks and other outlets.
