What If You Having Body Fat Cost You More On Your Job

What If You Having Body Fat Cost You More On Your Job
Posted by Dexter Nelson: Wednesday, March 20, 2013 (5:31 PM)

What If You Had To Pay More Because Of Your Body Fat?


Penalized for body fat


It's a very strange question and probably appaling to many, but I assure you it's a very real and very serious question.


I ran across a trending article by Jason Notte over at MSN's MoneyNow (the link is just below), and in the article CVS pharmacy is considering penalizing employees $600 a year if they don't take part in a "voluntary" wellness program.


You can read the full story by clicking the link below, but it seems to me that they are taking the next step beyond a fat tax, which is an additional placed upon fattening food, beverages or individuals.


If you remember a few years ago there was a big uproar in the news about people having to pay higher taxes and paying penalties for being obese. I think it was Denmark first, then Japan adopted a similar program.


I'd have to look and find out all of whom adopted that idea of battling the bulge, but here's my question.


Would you work a job if you knew that just be being obese you could be penalized several hundred dollars a year? Or is this not a slap in the face as many I assume perceive (based on the reactions in the news), and incentive for someone who's been fighting to lose weight to step up?


You tell me. Leave a comment and let me know what you think.
