McDonald’s Sells Fast Food But Tells Employees Not To Eat It!


Around 28 billion US Dollars revenue were made by McDonald’s in 2013 primarily with selling fast food items like cheeseburgers, french fries, soft drinks, milk shakes, and desserts. [1] Moreover, with more than 35.000 restaurants worldwide and around 1.9 million employees, McDonald’s can surely be considered a big shark in the fast food business. [2]

However, on its internal employee website McDonald’s discourages its employees to eat fast food on a regular basis. It is considered an “unhealthy choice” as you can see in the pictures provided below. Additionally, in the print screen, McDonald’s goes further and states that “(…) it is hard to eat a healthy diet when you eat at fast food restaurants often”.


How ironic that McDonald’s spends almost a billion (or 963 million US dollars) in order to persuade us to eat their “unhealthy choice”. They have disabled the site in order to avoid any further image damages and they state that:

“A combination of factors has led us to re-evaluate, and we’ve directed the vendor to take down the website. Between links to irrelevant or outdated information, along with outside groups taking elements out of context, this created unwarranted scrutiny and inappropriate commentary. None of this helps our McDonald’s team members.” [3]
