Starbucks Spends More on Employee Health Care Than on Coffee Beans

Starbucks looks to trim employees' … waistlines | Health Link | KING5.com | News for Seattle, Washington

So they are folowing a program to help employess slim down. Odd, since I don't ever remember seeing a fat Starbucks employee.

given their proximity to their super fatty, sodium rich, caloric frapp's and lattes, i think they must be prone to some unhealthy growth...

that would be funny - if there was an internal memo telling employees to reduce consumption of their own company's drinks to reduce their health care costs!
