Too Rich to Care?

On this MSN Post: "40 Mindless Ways You’re Burning Through Your Paychequeyou will find a list of forty ways you may be burning through your paycheck on a personal level. Do you also know that your paycheck is indirectly diminished by the funds-burning practices of your food business or the food company where you work? 

Alright! So you do not own or work in a food business. Did you see that approximately 15 out of the 40 ways listed in the MSN post have something to do with food or groceries? Whether or not you own, operate , work for, or buy from food businesses or their retail agents, your paycheck or pocketbook is affected by the drains (avoidable drains) that are swallowing up huge sums of money from food businesses. Many needless losses are not calculated. They are simply accepted (blindly, I might add) as "cost of doing business" but you and I are not left off the hook.

We end up paying that cost. You think TAXES are bad, think again. We are paying for fanciful certifications but still getting sub-quality and, in some instances, food that poison or punish us. We can all help to stop the burning. The SSQA Concept can certainly help food businesses, their customers and consumers.
