McDonald’s employee site bashes fast food
McDonald’s employee resources website once again is giving out worker advice that doesn’t seem to fit. This time, it’s about the industry it helped make ubiquitous — 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.
Another post labels a meal with a cheeseburger and fries as the “unhealthy choice” and one with a submarine sandwich and salad as the “healthier choice,” noting that it’s more of a challenge to eat healthy when visiting a fast-food place.
A separate post writes, “it is hard to eat a healthy diet when you eat at fast-food restaurants often,” adding that large portions make it easy to overeat.
The site also advises people to limit how many fries they eat.
“In general, people with high blood pressure, diabetes, and heart disease must be very careful about choosing fast food because of its high fat, salt, and sugar levels,” the post said, adding that items from fast-food places are “almost always high” in calories, fat, sugar and salt.
There’s nothing worse than getting caught telling the truth in public.
I suspect McD’s has a saboteur in the IT Dept. Scroll down, the story mentions that the same employee site last month offered workers advice on how to tip servants and budgets that didn’t include heat.
I may sign up just for fun.
