McDonald’s Embarassing McResource Website Is Shut Down

McDonald’s Employee Website Yanked After Ridicule

The site’s latest gaffe: a post… that told employees to avoid fast food in favor of a “healthier choice.”

…A post earlier this month provided advice on how much one should tip pool cleaners and housekeepers. [!?!] And in July, the site published a sample monthly budget as a guideline for employees that didn’t account for food and gas and included income from a second job — seen as a not-so-subtle acknowledgement that McDonald’s wages alone don’t provide a sufficient living wage.

In a statement on its own website, McDonald’s acknowledged that it has taken down the resource site.
