Boycott Whole Foods!

This just in: Whole Foods will be charging fat employees more for their groceries than their thinner coworkers. Hey Whole Foods -- Fuck you!

And crap science to boot! Whether or not you believe people can control their weight by permanent restrictive diets (can't say that I do), high cholesterol is not always produced by diet or lifestyle. My best mate has very high cholesterol though she ticks all the other "health nazi" boxes - average weight for her height, doesn't smoke or drink etc. You can't argue with your genetics. This policy is clearly aimed at clawing back money from employees with health problems, "self-inflicted" or otherwise. I hope they get boycotted into bankruptcy!

Anyway, I want to know, how do you police a scheme like this? The admin costs will surely outweigh any miniscule savings to the company on insurance premiums. How often are people tested to make sure they haven't been hoeing into the mars bars on the sly? Will there be weekly weigh-ins complete with public humiliation of employees whose discount gets downgraded? Stupid AND discriminatory. What a way to run a business.
