McDonald’s has more tips for its employees: stay away from fast food.
The McDonald’s employee resources website, McResource Line, previously recommended among other things that workers eat less, complain less, and sing more. Other pointers including selling stuff online rather than pestering the boss for a raise and returning unopened holiday gifts for a refund. At least that’s been among the allegations from an activist group called Low Pay Is Not OK.
Now the employee resource portal is reportedly warning people that a fast-food diet, such as that served up by McDonald’s restaurants, could make you fat, and labels an image of a burger, fries, and a soda as an example of an unhealthy choice. A sandwich “loaded with vegetables” (such as might be purchased at a competitor like Subway) and a salad are labeled as a healthier choice.
“Fast foods are quick, reasonably priced, and readily available alternatives to home cooking. While convenient and economical for a busy lifestyle, fast foods are typically high in calories, fat, saturated fat, sugar, and salt and may put people at risk for becoming overweight,” a post on the website explains.
