IIUC correctly from online sources, free works massively in favor of companies and due to economies of scale, it works out so cheap.
Even if a company saves 30 minutes for 10 employees, that quicly adds up.
Yet, so many companies dont have free food(cisco, intel, apple, msft , adobe etc) dont provide food..
You guys are really out of control with the absurd sense of entitlement. These are jobs, I know it comes as a shock but its actually not supposed to be like still spending all day at your mothers house. Your employer is not actually supposed to be providing you cooked meals, doing your laundry, taking care of your transportation with shuttles etc. Some of you really need to get a grip on reality and learn how to be adults. You get a hint of the generosity of an employer or two with crazy perks and suddenly it becomes the norm and like everyone is entitled to it. It's insane. Then there is posts with people talking about wanting to unionize. God forbid your employer doesnt pay for you to fly first class and provide you 3 michelin star catered meals by Thomas Keller to go along with your several hundred thousand dollar comp package to play on a computer all day.
