COPY-Some McDonald's employees will receive $1 raise

Posted: Updated:

(CNN) - McDonald's will raise the hourly wages for some 90,000 workers.

Beginning July 1, starting wages at the fast-food chain will be a least $1 an hour more than the state's legal minimum.

Plus, all current employees, up to and including managers, will get a pay raise.

And the company will let full and part-time employees accrue paid time off, as long as they've worked there for a year.

The only catch is the new rules only apply to the 1,500 restaurants actually owned by the McDonald's corporation.

About 90 percent of all locations are franchisee-owned.

That means the huge majority of McDonald's workers won't benefit.
