Franchise owners wary of pending labor board decision


By Dan Tuohy, New Hampshire Union Leader

AUBURN — A labor board’s pending decision could impact an array of local franchises in New  Hampshire, according to business people who asked U.S. Rep.-elect Frank Guinta for support Tuesday. Debra Desrosiers, co-owner of the Visiting Angels in Auburn, which provides in-home eldercare services, said that a forthcoming decision by the National Labor Relations Board involves the prospect of McDonald’s Corp. being treated as a “joint employer” in connection with labor complaints.
