San Francisco Wants To Ban "Free Lunch" Programs For Employees
Free lunches are a treasured perk at several tech companies in the Bay Area but San Francisco wants to put an end to that practice to help local businesses. Two San Francisco legislators introduced a bill to stop the free lunch cafeterias stating that local businesses can't compete. "We see thousands of employees in a block radius that don't go out to lunch and don't go out in support of restaurants every day," said Ryan Corridor, owner of Corridor, a restaurant blocks from San Francisco's city hall in a statement to CBS. If the bill passes it would only apply to new companies, not existing companies already in S.F. (Google, Twitter, and Levi Strauss & Co. etc.) There are currently 51 such employee cafeterias in the city of San Francisco.
