McDonald’s McResources Site Is Kaput

Upgrading. Photo: Low Pay Is Not OK via YouTube

The company’s employee portal that advised minimum-wage-earning employees to avoid fast food, explained how to stretch a limited budget by cutting food into small pieces, and offered guidance on how much to tip the landscapers has been taken offline. McDonald’s posted a statement explaining that recent media attention “created unwarranted scrutiny and inappropriate commentary,” adding, “None of this helps our McDonald’s team members.” The site will now be upgraded to provide the “best experience possible.” [CNN, Earlier]
