MCDONALD'S WIRE — McDonald's recently partnered with Visa to give its employee's some financial planning materials to get their "money on track." Besides a good dose of condescending advice, the fast food giant provides budgeting templates that are downright inaccurate. Among other fatal flaws, the templates suggest that workers need a minimum of $15/hour to get by, as opposed to versus the average $8.25 McDonald's workers make. Eater National has a full video analysis of the faulty templates from Low Pay Is Not Okay, a fast-food workers advocacy group. [~EN~]
