Another McDuh: McDonald's tells their own staff NOT to eat fast food
Official Web site has fast food giant telling employees to look for second jobs
The official Web site for fast food king McDonald's has made for a MOST unhappy meal. On the Web site, the chain lectured employees NOT to eat take out. The site had previously drew negative press when they urged employees to sell their things and get second jobs to make ends meet. The Web site has since been taken down - but even Ronald McDonald won't be able to put a smile on a lot of faces afterward.
The corporation was quick to cover its tracks. The Web site then offered this message: "We are temporarily performing some maintenance in order to provide you with the best experience possible. Please excuse us while these upgrades are being made," it said.
Confirming the Web site had been taken down, corporate offered this message: "A combination of factors has led us to re-evaluate and we've directed the vendor to take down the website,' they said in a statement . Between links to irrelevant or outdated information, along with outside groups taking elements out of context, this created unwarranted scrutiny and inappropriate commentary."
The mixed messages the Web site sent were phenomenal. While many items at the McDonald's are deep fried, the Golden Arches reminded employees that "avoiding items that are deep fried are your best bet." In spite of offering these delicious condiments, McDonald's also told employees to "limit the extras such as cheese, bacon and mayonnaise.'
It appears to be a case of do as we say, not as we instruct you to do. Many fast food locations offer steep food discounts and short breaks to employees, virtually forcing them to eat the unhealthy food, often forcing the hand of workers without the time or means to eat elsewhere.
"It is hard to eat a healthy diet when you eat at fast-food restaurants often," the Web site said.
"Many foods are cooked with a lot of fat, even if they are not trans fats. Many fast-food restaurants do not offer any lower-fat foods."
The coup de grace: McDonald's advises its employees to eat elsewhere!
"Eat at places that offer a variety of salads, soups, and vegetables," the site says.
Adding to the Web site confusion, is that the McDonald's Web page offers employees tips on weathering through poverty, it in turn offered advice on how to tip au pairs, doormen, personal trainers and pool boys!
Clearly, employees were not lovin' it.
