While America is being downsized from full-time jobs to lots of part-time jobs because of Obamacare, the great Kathleen Sebelius, head of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services has big plans to help her government workers, lose weight, and save the planet at the same time—
Because we all know, government workers are fat, fat, fat.
The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services says it wants as many as 20 percent of its workers to “telework,” use an “alternative work schedule,” or do both, in order to “reduce green house gas emissions,” decrease “employee stress,” and give these government workers more time for “planning and preparing healthy meals.”
An “alternative work schedule,” according to the federal Office of Personnel Management means having “flexible work schedules and compressed work schedules.” A compressed work schedule means putting the 80 hours of work required in a two-week government pay period into less than 10 work days.
“This goal is in concert with implementation of the HHS Strategic Sustainability Performance Plan (SSPP) prepared under Executive Order (EO) 13514, which requires HHS to reduce green house gas (GHG) emissions by technological, programmatic and behavioral changes,” says the HHS strategic plan.
The goal here is to let all the single moms stay home and cook delicious meal for themselves because EVERYONE knows, when you are at home, the last thing you want to do is hop in your car and go get a big Mac, with fries and a chocolate milkshake. No, what you really want to do is eat a spinach salad. And since you are not getting in and out of your car polluting the planet with all your sweat from walking around the parking lot at that government building which is so huge, you have to walk fifteen minutes just to get to your office, you are also going to be getting off your computer chair at home, and getting on that treadmill you have in your basement because you now…want to exercise.
You have to wonder…what social engineering guru thought this up and in what Think Tank?
