    McDonald’s Advice To Underpaid Employees: Sell Your Christmas Presents For Cash


    http://thinkprogress.org/economy/201...presents-cash/

    Tis the season for holiday spirit: Yule logs, egg nog, festive lights and exchanging gifts with loved ones. If you work for McDonald’s, though, be sure to save those receipts.

    McDonald’s McResource Line, a dedicated website run by the world’s largest fast-food chain to provide its 1.8 million employees with financial and health-related tips, offers a full page of advice for “Digging Out From Holiday Debt.” Among their helpful holiday tips: “Selling some of your unwanted possessions on eBay or Craigslist could bring in some quick cash.”

    Elsewhere on the site, McDonald’s encourages its employees to break apart food when they eat meals, as “breaking food into pieces often results in eating less and still feeling full.” And if they are struggling to stock their shelves with food in the first place, the company offers assistance for workers applying for food stamps.

    This is another article about the subject, it's still full of bias but not quite as bad.

    This reminds me of a recent election cycle, wherein the incumbent was so hungry for political donations, his party actually asked private citizens to donate to his campaign, instead of buying gifts for others!

    I wonder which idea came first: The DNC's money-grab, or McD's?
    Not that it matters.
    I do not have time for either one of them.

    My job would be so much harder if there were no McDonalds restaurants and no such things as Happy Meals. The state cars would be cleaner, though.
