McDonalds Tells Workers To Budget By Getting A Second Job And Turning Off Their Heat

Here's a nice sample "budget journal" for McDonalds’ employees to help them budget and live off their wages.

I like how there's a space for a second job - a second full time job at that. I also liked the $600 a month for rent. Where? Only if you live in apartment with more roommates then bedrooms, the whole idea of it being a mortgage is just laughable. No money for heat, none for transportation/gas, and the real kicker...$20 for health insurance?!? Sign me up for that!!! Even if you over look that, any money for co-pays or medicine is budgeted. I guess that comes out of the "monthly spending money" along with toiletries, shoes and clothing, other necessities and, oh, you know, food.

Hope you're single and don't ever plan on having kids! I mean, you shouldn't, considering you're working 80 hours on this "budget" and sure can't afford childcare.
