Stop all the electric escalators and encourage exercise

Community Member kudos icon + Community member

The government is spending a lot of money in trying to get us employees to exercise and lose weight. Yet the government spends extra funds to keep us from using the stairs by installing electronic escalators. Climbing just two flights of stairs everyday could result a loss of 2.7kg or 6lbs per year. Six flights a day could help you trim nearly 18 lbs. We could be saving energy, maintenance costs all while keeping a healthier workforce. It's a win win folks. win win.

I agree to have my idea, not my name or information, posted online. YES
