    from an Alternet article I opened in my email box this morning:

    McDonald's Advice To Underpaid Employees: Break Food Into Pieces To Keep You Full
    The "advice" was published on the “McResource” website, meant to give tips to fast-food workers.

    "A video published by Low Pay Is Not OK shows the website’s advice to workers.  One piece of advice given is for workers to take two vacations a year--an impossible task given that many employees work two low-wage jobs.  It tells workers to “sing away stress” because it “can lower your blood pressure.”  And it tells McDonald’s employees to break “food into pieces,” which “results in eating less and still feeling full.”

    McDonald’s had previously come under fire for telling workers to apply for food stamps while being employed by a fast-food corporation raking in billions annually. Many McDonald’s workers make minimum wage.  The federal minimum wage rate is $7.25 an hour

    Sing away stress? Why thank you McDonald's. I'll be sure and do that the next time I try and digest one your mystery meat burgers.
