Eat as I Say, Not as I Cook: McDonald’s Advises Workers Not to Eat Fast-Food Crap

Written By Scott Joseph On December 24, 2013

McDonald’s has been noted in the last several months for giving its workers somewhat curious advice. On one occasion, the fast-fooder, which typically pays its staffers an arguably less-than-livable wage, gave financial advice to its workers that they might want to get second (or third) jobs to help make ends meet. Another little tidbit gave advice on how much to tip one’s au pair, personal fitness trainer or pool cleaner.

But this time it looks like the Clown has some good food for thought, which is to say food other than McDonald’s. According to an article at NBCNews.com, McDonald’s has advised its workers that they’re a lot better off if they don’t eat fast food.

“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,” reads one post on the site, which includes a picture of a hamburger and fries, two items that the fast-food giant specializes in selling.”

Makes sense to me. And I’m going to pass the advice on to my au pair, right after she gets back from her second job.
