Right To Sit

A group of older Korean men and women in New York are fighting with a McDonalds in Queens for their right to sit.

According to the New York Times, the group typically arrives early in the morning and stays in the restaurant for most of the day.

McDonalds workers have gotten fed up with the group.

Many customers say the group is taking up space and making it difficult to find a table.

The restaurant has since implemented a 20 minute rule saying all customers must leave no later than 20 minutes after being served.

Many of the people in the group say it is impossible to eat and drink their food in 20 minutes or less.

Recently, cops have intervened and escorted the group out.

However, the group will simply walk the block and come back inside.

The group, though, says they have the right to sit in the restaurant because they are paying customers, buying food and coffee every day.

The manager of the restaurant wants the group to leave and told the New York Times, this is a McDonalds, not a senior center.
