McDonald’s is defending saving tips on its employee website that suggest workers break their food into smaller pieces to feel fuller, seek refunds for unopened holiday purchases, and other advice deemed “offensive” by an advocacy group.

The advice to its employees who struggle to make ends meet was “taken out of context,” a spokesperson for the hamburger chain said.

Some screen shots of McDonald’s McResource page were distributed on the Internet byLowPayisNotOk.org including tips such as, “Breaking food into pieces often results in eating less and still feeling full,” and “At least two vacations a year can cut heart attack risk by 50 percent.”

A video on LowPayIsNotOk.org argues, “Two jobs not two vacations is more like it for most McDonald’s employees.”
