Dec. 27 (Bloomberg) -- Bloomberg’s Alix Steel discusses the embarrassment around McDonald’s employee research website. She speaks with Betty Liu on Bloomberg Television's “In the Loop.” (Source: Bloomberg)

The christmas holiday.

It was on wednesday.

When you are better known for high-profile gaffes than getting real content, that is a big problem.

That has really played to mcdonald's website.

A string of public embarrassment.

They are actually created by a help company.

They do not control the actual content.

The goal is to help workers, but it ends up insulting them.

They say to break food into pieces to feel more full.

It was a last straw.

They are saying they will be back soon.

A combination of factors has led to a reevaluation and they have taken down the website.

The link has a relevant or outdated information.

This traded unwarranted and the -- scrutiny.

They did not recommend not to eat fast food, just to make more informed choices.

When they stay out of context, could one of those the that this website was not just for their workers, but also for executives that work for corporate mcdonald's? it is definitely possible.

They employ 3.9 million minimum-wage workers.

They are the biggest chunk in the country.

The majority of the people on the site are probably going to be the workers.

They obviously do not have an au pair.

Perhaps they make more money on two jobs.

Mcdonald's can't even afford to keep one worker salary full.

They need to have two jobs to make it work.

The sisters do another series of issues that we have heard from mcdonald's. the broader issues they cannot seem to make their sales numbers.

Sales are down 8/10 of one percent.

Revenues are coming in at .24%. that is less than half of their other peers.

It is not just mcdonald's, it is the broad, quick service restaurant.

This is a huge issue that they have struggled to overcome.

They do not have a new product.

What happened to the mighty wing?

They're having a hard time getting traction.

They are not the only ones.

They're the biggest of them all.

They did a survey and said that they are the rest of the least.

Thank you so much.

Moving and shaking this hour, the gm ceo is recalling 1.5 million buicks and chevys.

This is due to defective fuel pump brackets that could crack.

In some cases, they could cause fuel leaks.

This is one of the biggest recalls to date for any automaker in china.

The bracket should be easy to fix, the recall is a black eye
