McDonald`s shuts down `advice` website post criticism
New York – Fast food chain McDonald’s Corp has shut down a website that warned its own employees against eating fast food, after it garnered negative publicity.
The McResource program was criticized for creating unrealistic budgets and offering advice which was deemed impossible with its employees’ pay, the New York Post reported.
The website, which was run by a third party company, intended to provide employees with work and life guidance.
McDonald’s, based in Oak Brook, Ill., said in a statement that the company received unwarranted scrutiny and inappropriate commentary, as outside groups took elements out of context, and called their website’s content irrelevant or full of outdated information.
