In response to the widespread strikes against fast food giants, McDonald’s has partnered with Visa and Wealth Watchers International to set up a practical money skills website, designed to “…help you make financial goals, build budgets and track your spending.” They include an example budget, designed to help their employees manage their money and get ahead in life. They even include an example worksheet to help their employees budget… how helpful!
