Disingenuously preaching “You can have almost anything you want as long as you plan ahead and save for it,” the Czars at Mcdonalds have teamed with Visa to launch a website to "help" its workers budget on their massive paycheck of $18,000 and change a year, or $8.25 an hour, because clearly the only reason their workers are having a hard time making ends meet is because they're clueless and irresponsible, not because they Just Don't Make Enough Money To Live. Their "calculations" include $20 a month for health care, $600 a month for rent, nothing for heat, food, clothing or child care, and, oh yeah, a second job. The kicker: According to their own math, workers would need to make $15 an hour - roughly the amount they are now fighting tooth and nail to prevent - to survive. Last year, Bloomberg News found it would take the average McDonalds employee a million hours of work to earn as much as the company’s CEO. What's more outrageous: that fact, or the grotesque, self-righteous, patronizing hypocrisy of this site? Tough call.
