#ThanksMichelleObama: Schools laying off cafeteria workers as kids refuse to buy skimpy and tasteless lunches
A new group can join the school kids using #thanksMichelleObama as a bitter hashtag. The kids were merely Tweeting pictures of unappetizing and skimpy school lunches conforming to her anti-obesity program. The newcomers to the hashtag will be unemployed school cafeteria workers, laid off because kids refuse to buy the tasteless fare. Paul Bedard reports in the Washington Examiner:
A new survey from the School Nutrition Association reported that 70 percent of the nation's lunch programs have been financially "harmed" by the new low-salt, low-sugar menus and that a stunning 93 percent report fewer students buying the chow.
"Meeting these mandates has harmed the financial health of nearly 70 percent of school meal programs surveyed, with fewer than 3 percent reporting a financial benefit," said the survey. Some 49 percent of the responding schools said they were forced to cut cafeteria staff as a result. (emphasis added)
The financial threat to school food programs has become so grave that the association is calling on Congress to provide more money.
Of course, when people rebel against government dictates, the answer is always to take more money way from them and give it to the government. Feed the delusional beast.
