Cheaper To Eat At Parliament Than At The Hospital

Published March 18, 2013

You know whose wallet deserves a break? Career politicians. So it’s a good thing
that they can buy standard goods for less from the cafeteria in Alþingi
than employees turning to the cafeteria at Landspítali for sustenance. reports that the between what is paid for Skyr, pop (Coke, Sprite, etc.), a bread roll, fruit juice, or salad bar combination of salad, soup and bread, is 25% higher for those dining at the hospital.
This price comparison between the two cafeterias is one revelation brought to light on Icelandic Confederation of Labour’s (ASÍ) “Vertu á verði!” (“Be on Guard”) project website. “Vertu á verði!”gives consumers the change to report when prices have either gone up or down, in an effort to keep eachother informed and to publicly shine a light on the companies that are either raising their prices or not honouring the prices they’ve advertised.
