McDonald's has dispensed a whole mess of poor advice to its underpaid employees in recent months — get a second job, sign up for food stamps — but this latest Holiday haul may be its Grinchiest yet.

Screencaps from an employees-only McDonald's site called the "McResource Line," released by anti-low wage group Low Pay Is Not OK, appear to show suggestions from the fast food giant on how its workers can reduce "holiday debt."

Under "Tightening Your Belt," the company writes:


You may also want to consider returning some of your unopened purchases that may not seem appealing as they did. Selling some of your unwanted possessions on eBay or Craigslist could bring in some quick cash.

And here are a few other "helpful tips" from the world's largest restaurant chain:

Eat less: "Breaking food into pieces often results in eating less and still feeling full."


Work less: "At least two vacations a year can cut heart attack risk by 50%."

Complain less: "Stress hormone levels rise by 15% after ten minutes of complaining."

Sing more: "Singing along to your favorite songs can lower your blood pressure."

At least Walmart had the decency to hold a food drive for its starving employees.
