For example a contract is made between corporate and employee designating that the employee is willing to put into a fund and the fund returns x amount of $ per lost weight plus an extra percentage of $(hence the matching amt) as incentive to loose weight. If the employee does not loose the weight then the employee forfeits his/her amt. Can you see this happening in our society?
