These Working Conditions Are Too Good

Few organizations have as little credibility to me as the Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI). These people want to control what you are allowed to put into your body - and it certainly should never have fat, salt ("the forgotten killer"), sugar, alcohol, or caffeine in it. In what has to be one of their looniest moves yet (and there's been lots of them), they have teamed up with the union representing some Starbucks employees:

The union contends that Starbucks staff gain weight when they work at the chain. They are offered unlimited beverages and leftover pastries for free during their shifts.

That's correct: Starbucks is being criticized for giving free stuff to their employees. And the union doesn't like it!
