One of the biggest drains on El Segundo's economy is the "lunch outsourcing" problem -- people who drive in from San Gabriel or Riverside and bring their own lunch to work rather than visiting one of our fine local establishments. Sure, bringing a lunch can be cheaper and tastier, and importing food creates jobs in poorer, rural areas, but just think of all the restaurants and convenience stores near work that suffer! They're just trying to make a living, and the importation of cheap food -- whose makers often aren't even paid for their labor -- undermines the social fabric of our local economy.
