No free lunch for you!

A solution in search of a problem:

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, introduced on Tuesday by San Francisco Supervisors Ahsha Safaí and Aaron Peskin, seeks to prohibit new companies from opening in-house cafeterias.

Perhaps, the idiots who own the restaurants could have tried partnering with the tech firms to offer convenient on-site lunch options.

“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.”

He's taking away a fringe benefit but paints it as a good thing. What a scumbag.
