Per Diem Savings

With the current system, employees are paid the full per diem amount regardless of whether they use all of it. Employees can make money while traveling if they eat fast food as opposed to nicer restaurants. The government could save money if they only reimbursed employees for what was used. Or, an incentive program could be instituted where employees got a percentage of what they saved the taxpayer.
