This is a shining example of why I cannot stand Authoritarian Progressives. They have to constantly "push" people to do what they want through the power of government. Here is a shining example from San Francisco. They don't want people staying in their office buildings, they want them walking the $hit and needle covered streets dodging junkies and then they make laws stating that company cafeterias cannot provide employees free or reduced cost food (That one is Mountain View, CA actually).
The best line is the quote from one of the local politicians who "co sponsored" the proposal:
“People will have to go out and (eat) lunch with the rest of us,”
Seriously, how the hell do Progressives justify this crap?
A proposal introduced Tuesday to ban employee cafeterias in future San Francisco office buildings represents more than an effort to boost the city’s restaurant scene, backers say.
“People will have to go out and (eat) lunch with the rest of us,” Aaron Peskin, a San Francisco supervisor who co-sponsored the proposal, told The San Francisco Examiner.
“This is also about a cultural shift,” Supervisor Ahsha Safai, who proposed the ban, told The San Francisco Chronicle. “We don’t want employees biking or driving into their office, staying there all day long and going home. This is about getting people out of their office, interacting with the community and adding to the vibrancy of the community.”
Introduced Tuesday, the proposed ban now will be reviewed by a city committee, reported KNTV.
The nearby city of Mountain View recently barred a new Facebook office from offering free- or reduced-cost meals at its cafeteria, reported the Chronicle.
More human poop on San Francisco sidewalks ‘than I’ve ever seen,’ new mayor says
What A Wonderful Progressive Utopia San Francisco Is!
I am sure many will move to Denver and Austin soon to replicate this Utopia and vote in the same progressive idiots.
However, as technology companies come under increasing pressure to deliver more value to the communities they inhabit, cities are clamping down on campus cafeterias in an attempt to support local restaurants.
Two thousand Facebook employees are due to move into an office in a complex called The Village at San Antonio Center. In a 2014 agreement with the social network, reported by the San Francisco Chronicle this week, the city stipulated that tenants of the development cannot subsidise employee meals by more than 50%. Facebook can, however, cover the cost of employees’ food if they dine in restaurants that are open to the public.

I'm really starting to hate the way people spin things on ATS...

So you aren't free to eat where you want, but on the bright side, you are free to poop where you want!
I can smell a compromise cooking. We keep the cafeterias but get rid of our bathrooms.
