McDonald’s tells workers to sell their Christmas gifts for cash

McDonald’s can’t stop, won’t stop dolling out bizarre “advice” for their employees, including a set of “tips” ranging from stress management techniques to how to get a quick buck. Low Pay Is Not Okay once again highlights the fast food giant’s latest head scratcher, which appears on the employee website McResources Line.

Among the tips the chain offers to employees:

Go on at least two vacations a year. Apparently this cuts your heart attack risk by 50%! You know what else cuts your risk of heart attack? Being paid a living wage so you’re not struggling to make ends meet.

Break your food into pieces. If you take smaller bites you’ll probably eat less. Ahh yes, totally reasonable to take nutrition advice from someone who really knows.

Eat cheese. But only small bites of cheese. Bonus points if you buy it with your food stamps!

Sing out loud to lower blood pressure. I mean if Justin Timberlake does then by god you should too!

Sell your unopened Christmas presents and other possessions on eBay or Craigslist. Just rip that brand new toy straight from your sobbing child’s hand. They’ll totally understand.

Quit complaining. “We told you how to make a budget what more do you want?!”
