McDonald's Warns Its Own Employees Not to Eat "Unhealthy" Fast Food

For related articles and more information, please visit OCA's Health Issues page and our Breaking The Chains page.

McDonald's really cares about its workers! That's why the internal McResource Line website dispensed lifestyle tips relevant to people scraping by on minimum wage - like how much to tip your personal trainer or pool cleaner, and that you should "sing away stress." And that you probably shouldn't eat McDonald's.

Tragically, McDonald's just shut the site down. (Now NO ONE knows whether the pool boy will accept 20 percent!) The supersized straw that broke the camel's back was a photo of an "unhealthy" meal - much like one you'd get at the Golden Arches - juxtaposed with a "healthier" meal of salad, water, and a sandwich. Yes, it seems even McDonald's was admitting its food is awful for you:  

The site added this sage advice:

While convenience [sic] and inexpensive for a busy lifestyle, fast foods are typically high in calories, fat saturated fat, sugar, and salt [A]voiding items that are deep fried are your best bet.
