McDonald's reminds employees to tip their pool cleaners and dog walkers

Fast-food giant McDonalds is making another round of news headlines. NBC news reports that the McResource Line for employees has offered ample tipping etiquette for its employees. Employees need to remember to be kind to their pool cleaners, dog walkers, massage therapists, housekeepers and physical fitness trainers. McDonald's spokesperson Lisa McComb told CNBC that the tipping etiquette is from etiquette expert Emily Post, a third party resource.

McDonalds does ask their employees to tip based on relationships with service people and budget constraints. This only applies to employees who may want to be generous for the holidays. McDonalds, no strangers to controversy, has been criticized by the employees and the public for hawking their fantasy household budgets to employees and suggesting that employees should return their unopened Christmas gifts for extra cash.

According to 2012 labor statistics, fast food workers average $9 per hour, which could make tipping the pool boy difficult—if not highly unlikely. Read more about this story at the NBC website or the Gawker.
