    McDonald's budget tips for minimum wage employees a bit of a stretch
        "Pundits have estimated the employee in the sample budget would have to be working at least 60 hours
    a week, so who'd have the time or energy to do anything else with the extra cash anyway"
    Micky D's advice for minimum wage earners that work for them is ridiculous. Another corporation keeping pay low so employees have to receive some type of public assistance.
    I advise them to find a better job... … yee-mocked

      Outside of medical insurance and rent, it doesn't too far out of line.  You can't buy insurance for $20 and no one on minimum wage, even at 60 hours per week, can really afford an apartment by themselves.  A roomie would cut that in half, and about buy the insurance. 

      And yes, $800 spending money would have to include groceries; quite easily done for one person.

      In any case, though, anyone working at Micky D's needs a different job if they are out on their own.  It is suitable only for very entry level workers and those looking for a little extra part time earnings.  Minimum wage is NOT intended to support a person, much less a family.
