According to national organization guidelines, Girl Scouts are not allowed to sell cookies outside adult-oriented businesses such as liquor stores, casinos or marijuana centers. However they may sell cookies outside family oriented businesses, such as grocery stores. Grocery stores selling liquor, beer, lottery tickets and tobacco are also permitted.

This is a big news controversy because lots of top performing Girl Scouts have recently been setting up sales outside of Dispensaries.

My take? The rules need to change.

Bureaucracy Eats Girl Scout Cookie Profits:

Very interesting article, NewsBot.

So practically none of the cookie sale profits go to support activities of the girl scout groups themselves. Most of it goes to pay central administration salaries at one of 332 regional scouting councils. Salaries average $90,000, with full benefits. These are paper pushers whose main job seems to be second guessing girls who sell in front of the wrong places.

Oh that article is from 1993. $90,000 salary in 1993 is pretty fucking high! But the article says it's typical for a non profit staff. It says their main job is to "enforce policies". That staff is a bunch of losers with no business experience, no degree, none who could get a job at WalMart.

>that article is from 1993

Things will have only got worse since then.

Who decides the bakery to get the contract?
How is that decision reached?
How much is that contract worth?

How transparent is the selection process?

How transparent is the management and finances of the Girl Guides?

The scout movement as a whole?

The government?

The CIA?

The NSA?

Who are you?
What are you doing in here?
Is that a gun?
