This final note today, in which the McDonalds website puts its foot firmly in the corporate mouth.

We’ve told you in the past about how the employee hotline, called McResouceshas suggested workers apply for food stamps to help ends meet. Here’s another one, discovered today by CNBC.

The site advises on nutrition as well and says, “Although not impossible, it is more of a challenge to eat healthy when going to a fast food place,” accompanied by a picture of what looks a whole lot like a Big Mac and fries labeled, “unhealthy choice.”
