Reason number 3,767 to not shop at Whole Foods
There has been much talk about this article, concering Whole Foods' new policy of granting a steeper discount to employees with lower BMIs and other "health"-related factors. It's exactly what we have been railing against for years: employers using weight to unfairly undercompensate their fat workers. Even laypeople who don't think about this stuff all day have been saying how ridiculous the policy is. I mean, think about it. You own a store that purports to sell healthy food. Why would you want to make it more difficult for your so-called "unhealthy" employees to access the food you sell? Perhaps the opposite should be true, that your employees who have health issues have even greater discounts than the healthy ones. Or perhaps you should really get out of your employees' personal business. Just saying.
Anyone have any info on boycotts or the like? Feel free to post it in the comments.
