Submission + - The Biggest Loser contest at work (nbc.com)

OutputLogic writes: "Everybody knows about obesity epidemic in the US and many other countries. There is a lot of media interest to this problem, including popular TV show "The Biggest Loser". However, it came to me as a shock when my employer, a mid-size high-tech publicly traded corporation, announced "The Biggest Loser" contest at work. Well, we have a fair amount of overweight employees. But still, the whole idea of having such a contest at a workplace is demeaning, to say the least. I wonder if such thing is becoming a commonplace and what /. readers think about it."
