Frankly the original company in question

Quote:
Workers are fired up over a new plan to offer health insurance incentives based on their Body Mass Index, or BMI.

In a letter to staffers, managers announced a $13.33 credit every two weeks for folks who meet a 'weight target' or BMI of 30.
Are PAYING people EXTRA to get within a healthy range of under 30. They're not punishing those who don't but they are PAYING people to EXTRA to maintain and improve their own health.

I think that's a generous company.
