KFC, McDonald's and Pizza Hut have been accused by local media in Guangdong province of not complying with labor laws when hiring local staff. Labor authorities are investigating allegations by the Guangzhou-based New Express Daily that the three restaurant chains were paying part-time workers in several Guangdong cities much less than the local minimum wage, the South China Morning Post reported. The report also accused the restaurants of demanding part-time employees work the hours of full-time staff but failing to pay them any full-time staff benefits. Both McDonald's and Yum, owner of KFC and Pizza Hut in China, have not yet responded to the allegations.
