WASTE: Feds Spent Over $200K To Get Hispanic Construction Workers To Quit Smoking
The federal government and liberals are constantly complaining that there just isn’t enough public money to go around. Of course there isn’t, because progressives are too busy spending it on stupid things like this.
The National Institutes of Health is spending more than $200,000 on a “novel” study using food trucks to get Hispanic construction workers to stop smoking.
Researchers on the project, which is being conducted by the University of Miami, will attempt to give workers “counseling sessions” about the dangers of smoking while they are on their lunch breaks.
A grant for the project explained that food trucks have never been used to try to get Hispanic men who work construction jobs to quit smoking before.
“A novel approach that was recently piloted by our team is to partner with the lunch truck that routinely visits construction sites to deliver brief worksite-based, effective health promotion interventions,” the grant said.
While we’re at it, can we spend money to keep Mexican rapists from entering the country through our southern border?
No, that’s not politically correct.
