For a while, the McDonald's employee support site was one of the most honest corporate learning sites out there. Sadly, the McResource site is now gone. Last July, the site recommended that McDonald's employees get a second job and sign up for food stamps to make ends meet. In November it advised workers to save money by eating less. "Breaking food into pieces often results in eating less and still feeling full," it advised. But what finally foced McDonald's corporate to pull the plug? It would be the December offering recommending to workers that they avoid fast food: "'it is hard to eat a healthy diet when you eat at fast-food restaurants often,' adding that large portions make it easy to overeat." At least this was useful, compared to the tipping advice the store gave employees, recommending "a gift from your family (or one week's pay), plus a small gift from your child for an au pair, one day's pay for a housekeeper and cost of one cleaning for a pool cleaner."
