San Francisco Proposes Bill to Ban Workplace Cafeterias
Many of you peeps out there are probably stockpiling plastic straws for the impending Strawmageddon. You might think denying you the right to sip a beverage in your car without staining your shirt is the worst the overreach can get. You're wrong.
San Francisco is now trying to nix on-site workplace cafeterias. I kid you not:
San Francisco’s working population is so homogenous that, when tech companies in the area (like Uber and Twitter) provide free lunches to employees, local restaurants are left empty.
That’s why the city is considering new legislation to end free lunch, a now standard benefit provided by upstart tech companies in the Bay Area. The bill seeks to prohibit new companies from opening in-house cafeterias.
“We see thousands of employees in a block radius that don’t go out to lunch and don’t go out in support of restaurants every day, because they don’t have to,“ said Ryan Corridor
“You can’t compete with free. Free food is a wonderful amenity but doesn’t do anything to extend the community around it,” Gwyneth Borden, executive director of the Golden Gate Restaurant Association, wrote in an open letter.
Well, the message from San Francisco to its citizens is pretty clear.
Allow me to sum up the left's views on personal freedoms. The use of a plastic drinking apparatus is on par with freebasing crack. Having a "best friend" in school is too triggering for the weird kid who snacks on his boogers. Now, they want to dictate what you can and can't have for lunch. Hopefully they're thinkin' Arby's.
This is what happens when you let leftism run wild in your immediate vicinity. You cease to be an individual capable of making big boy decisions. Instead, the state orders you around like an overbearing helicopter parent with little Brycer on a leash. Sad.
Also, there's no such thing as a "free lunch." Guess what, commies. Those big businesses are buying the food from somewhere. Free lunches are not produced by the bowel movements of stampeding unicorns. They're also paying employees to prepare the food. It's almost like those big companies are actually providing jobs when providing lunch to their employees.
There's just no winning at all for people who're now actively banning you from sucking via a straw. Let that sink it.
