    Just doing some quick research, it looks like the unemployment rate in Los Angeles County where this city is located is 12.6%. Another source indicates the unemployment rate in Baldwin Park is around 16.5%.

    So the question is, is the City fighting obesity by preventing the number of fast food establishments or by preventing the unemployed from getting jobs to buy food? I know most will say, well you can't support a family on a minimum wage job, I agree, but I'd rather have a minimum wage job then none at all.
