That's Chicago. Social issues-San Fran. Immigration issues- California as a whole. It's predictable.

They're not #ing banning cafeterias...they're banning places providing free lunch because these places have thousands of employees. They're not banning you from taking lunch, or eating lunch at your work. They're doing it because giant subsidized companies are basically taking over towns and providing nothing back. You can still eat your own food at work, you can still get your lunch paid for. Your boss just cant hire 5 star chefs and provide free meals for everyone every day. If you keep reading the article. They will even allow cafeterias if they're open to the genral public and supplied locally. The op's post is so full of bull# just like everything i read on here nowadays.


Yeah but without the spin there's nothing to be outraged about. Whatcha gonna do?

Who can afford to dine out at lunch every day? 💸💸💸

Are everyone's lunch times at the same hour in the middle of the day? That'll just creat crowded times with lineups, and slower service at those times.
Are they going to expand people's lunch times to accommodate those who are still waiting for their food to show up? Stagger people's work day to make for different working hours?

How is this progress, in any way?

I suggest reading the source and not rely on the OP's spin. It makes sense then.

Considering the cost of living in California?

Not many.

This is one of the great perks of working at some of the tech companies.

They provide you with all the food you need, breakfast, lunch and dinner. Other perks are places to workout and places just to chill

Now, the politicians want to take these perks away. Why?

Let the techies have their culture or risk the businesses moving somewhere that they are appreciated.

Next step is you can't pack your own lunch you have to go out and support local restaurants by force!

These people have lost their collective minds

After reading the source, OP and comments here I'm inferring that as well.

Should local government be able to determine how a company runs its business within the constraints of the law?

So, you can't stay isolated and protected in your Ivory Tower?

You can't get in your car at home, drive to work, get out of car, enter work - - - and never mingle with those on the street.

Does sound a bit elitist, doesn't it?

I remember when I worked on the 32nd floor in downtown Los Angeles. I looked down at the people below and felt superior (I was only 20).

Yes, you do feel superior and protected in your Ivory Tower.

I don't recogmize removing future "perks" such as the article suggests as anything more than more government intervention.

Odd, coming from a government constantly clamoring for free/reduced cost meals with little criteria; but federal and state dollars and grants are involved.

When private companies provide...one can't tax free, control the spending...worse yet, it's a write-off.

My business should have a cafeteria and gender neutral bathrooms if they decide thats how they wanna run their business.

Why would you want governments telling you how to think and run your business?

So you want to legislate morality.

It's done all the time. Why is this any different?

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.



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.


What did we get wrong?
