"McDonalds Advice To Underpaid Employees: Sell Your Christmas Presents For Cash"
By: Tyler Huth and Christian Volesky
When researching about this major #PRFAIL we realized a few things that came in mind. We ran into a issue McDonalds recently posted on their website giving advice about "holiday debt," bringing up the issue that McDonalds is under paying their employees. McDonalds, McResource line, is dedicated to many employees, and under this they listed a "helpful tips," "Selling some of your unwanted possessions on eBay or Craigslist could bring in some quick cash." McDonalds obviously knows that they aren't paying their employees enough to post something this cruel to them.
Going further in the site they listed, “breaking food into pieces often results in eating less and still feeling full.” Not only are these issues, but McDonalds is telling people to eat slower and a less amount of food just to get by so they won't starve. They know their employees aren't being paid enough, so they would rather just tell them advice on how to get by, instead of paying them more.
McDonalds employees are some of the most underpaid workers in the U.S. according to thinkprogress.org. Recently employees have gone on strike to earn much more then $7.75 an hour, but McDonalds had nothing to say.
We tried to find this article but we found this......
THE PAGE IS GONE!
McDonalds still has nothing to say, they aren't even willing to raise the minimum wage for the 1.8 million employees that spend time working for this global company.
We did some research and found this video about raising the big mac only $.68 cents!
This PR fail raising some issues and is now getting looked into by many employees, they are striking and doing their part to try and raise the minimum wage.
