>> mcdonald's internal resource, news of it temporarily shutting down made headlines. it became notorious for giving insensitive advice to employees.

>>> first the budget planning tool that did not account for food and relied on a second source of income for employees. then there were headlines there is advice on how much to tip your pool cleaner and aupair. to ask for salad and a water. manying donald's is on the site red links irrelevant to outdated information. outside groups have taken it out of context. none of this helps our mcdonald's team members.
