    Right now, there is no evidence that it is Whitson's policy, unless you have a copy of that policy.  Then blow them out of the water, for publicly lying, please.

    Unless you have evidence that no cafeteria worker will be fired or sanctioned or that Whitson's have directed their employees to engage in this horrible act, you have no basis to make the claim you do.  

    Whitson's policy is to feed children at least 5 meals that are unpaid before alerting the district (their employer) that a child's school meal balance is in arrears.  Perhaps they should have a more directive policy for their employees that says "if any employee violates company policy by refusing food or taking food from a served child, that employee will be subject to immediate termination of employment without appeal."

    Not all corporations are Exxon or BP.  But individual *ssholes can be found in any line of work.

      •  You still haven't proved Whitson's had a policy (9+ / 0-)

        and while you may disagree with my comment, the fact remains, you support a claim without evidence.  

        You demonstrate the same lust for promoting and rewarding wildly unproven claims by some on the right.  That works for them and for you, but for some of us progressives, factual claims require fact based fact, not simply opinion shouted as fact.  

        I shudder to believe that you may consider your comment reasoned discourse but it simply proves that yes, assholes can even be found blogging, we absolutely agree on that!!!

        Have a cheery day!

    •  Take a look at their incentives structure. (0+ / 0-)

      If you see phrases like "efficiency bonuses" - and you will - then you will know that the workers are incentivised to dole out the minimum in food they can get away with, because it helps the company's bottom line. And they get bonuses for helping the company's bottom line, not for actually feeding kids properly.
