McDonald’s employee budget calculator backfires

McDonald’s is a minimum wage job, but they still look out for their employees, right? People have taken issue with their “Employee Budget Calculator,” saying it proves McDonald’s knows they’re screwing people over.

While it might lead to a serious discussion about wages, take this video with a grain of salt. For one thing, comments on the video are disabled, which is an immediate red flag. Then there’s the fact that the outrage is based on the sample figures. McDonald’s set up the calculator as a tool, not a life plan.
