McDonald's Fall Out

In July, McDonald's drew criticism after it launched a website to help its employees manage personal finances on a minimum wage salary. A sample "budget journal" offered a number seemingly unreasonable allowances, including earmarking just $20 a month for health care, $0 for heating, and $600 a month for rent, but as Think Progress pointed out, no money for food or clothing.
