Some people ate breakfast and lunch, some lunch and dinner and one contractor I knew ate three meals a day there, with frequent raids on the mini kitchen.
On lobster day, lunch probably cost the company $40 per a head. Taco day, maybe 5 bucks.
Another thing, employees got free beer on Fridays. Contractors, no chance.
It will be interesting to see how they figure out what to tax each employee. Being the IRS they'll probably end up screwing everyone.
