First, McDonald's McResource line urged employees to get on government assistance. Then it told employees to sell their possessions to get out of holiday debt. Then it offered advice on how much employees should tip their massage therapists and au pairs.
Now, McResource is offering its best advice yet: Don't eat at McDonald's. Gawker says:
An image posted on the site labels a McDonald's-like meal of hamburger, fries, and a coke as an "unhealthy choice," and warns employees against consuming such foods, which are "almost always high in calories, fat, sugar, and salt."
"It is hard to eat a healthy diet when you eat at fast-food restaurants often," the site goes on to say. "Many foods are cooked with a lot of fat, even if they are not trans fats. Many fast-food restaurants do not offer any lower-fat foods. Large portions also make it easy to overeat. And most fast food restaurants do not offer many fresh fruits and vegetables."
This advice would be easier to follow if McDonald's employees were paid a living wage. As it is, many of them have no choice but to eat the shift meals that McDonald's supplies for its employees. Those meals are probably made up of all the things that the McResource line tells employees to avoid.
