  • In response to the controversy, McDonald’s shut down the website in question, which was aimed at providing “work and life advice” to employees
  • The average fast food worker makes less than $9 per hour, and more than 50 percent of US fast food workers are enrolled in some form of public assistance program, costing US tax payers an estimated $7 billion annually
