K: I totally agree in our company the employees pay half price. Most of them steal the food, but the honest people pay for the food. It is not fair to make our good employees pay. It is imposible to catch everyone.

So wouldn't a better solution be that employees receive free meals? If you can't police you workforce effectively, get rid of the need to police. If you want less crime, have less laws. Now, if the business were organized so that the workers were the actual owners then they could only be stealing from themselves. This thread had alot of debate earlier, I'd suggest looking down the page a bit to see it.

It would be far better for restaurant workers to be upfront about the theft of food and instead of covertly siezing it, they should get together and say, "This is ours, and we are taking it." But that'd take a union and more people need to be willing to put the effort into that, to many take the quick and dirty route. The way I see it, the workers are the one in the moral right and should start acting like it.
