The Führer of Whole Foods John Mackey hates his employees. And the fat ones? They’re beneath contempt.
Mackey, a noted monster among men, is well known for oppressing Whole Foods workers by paying the full insurance premium for 89% of all team members and offering employee discounts of 20 percent.
Expect beleaguered employees to endure even greater suffering this month when the company begins offering store discounts of up to 30 percent to workers who voluntarily join the Healthy Discount Incentive Program. Participants who maintain a healthy body mass index (BMI), refrain from smoking, and successfully manage their blood pressure and cholesterol levels will be eligible for this horrific wingnut punishment.
Mackey claims his program is designed to cut costs and promote employee health, but it’s clear what’s really going on: John Mackey is racist against fat people.
We can’t let this vile corporatist force ludicrous right wing concepts like personal responsibility down the throats of people who might someday support single-payer health care. It would be as un-American as those teabagging teabaggers.
