McDonald’s has taken down its staff resource website amid controversies surrounding its content. The latest advice given to restaurant employees is to stop eating fast food because it is unhealthy. In a statement on their website, the company has attempted to distance itself from the site, describing it as having been “created by independent third party experts.” With employee wages as little as $11,000 a year, the website also advised staff to get out of holiday debt by selling unopened gifts on eBay. In a true corporate paradox, it seems the company website has been designed to offer McDonald’s employees offers Band-Aids for the very wounds it has created.
