McDonald Corp. Chief Executive Officer Chris Kempczinski said the burger giant is grappling with violent crime, homelessness and drug overdoses in its Chicago restaurants, and called on city and business leaders to find ways to address the problems. 

Crime is having a corrosive effect on Chicago, where McDonald’s is working to bring corporate employees back to its headquarters after the Covid-19 pandemic, Mr. Kempczinski said during a keynote speech Wednesday at the Economic Club of Chicago. The company is trying to convince employees that it is safe to return downtown and ride public transportation again, he said.
