[quote:Anonymous Coward 9253046:MV8yMDUyMTI4XzM0NDkwMTc2XzQyQjgyREQx] [quote:Anonymous Coward 22478672:MV8yMDUyMTI4XzM0NDg5NTY2XzFDQzJEMjc2] [quote:Anonymous Coward 9253046:MV8yMDUyMTI4XzM0NDg5MzIxX0UyNDdGRTYz] This is a pointless question, I know, but when will restaurants eliminate the "assumed tipping" practice altogether? Restaurants should pay waitpersons at least the minimum wage, with customers still being permitted to tip if they feel the service is above average. [/quote] Tips are not for above average service they are an expected part of a transaction. How many times have you paid for something before and asked if you would like to add a tip before you even recieve the service? [/quote] My point is that I think it is [u]wrong[/u] that tips are "automatically" expected. I think that if restaurants would add 15% to their prices and pay their staff a livable wage, that both the restaurant owners AND the employees would come out ahead. (I could be wrong as I have never been in the restaurant business in any capacity; however, we do eat out an average of once a week. I personally would rather pay more upfront and NOT tip at all unless I have received above average service. JMO.) [/quote]
President Obama's election victory ensured his Affordable Care Act would remain the centerpiece of his first term in power - but that has left some business owners baulking at the extra cost Obamcare will bring.
Florida based restaurant boss John Metz, who runs approximately 40 Denny's and owns the Hurricane Grill & Wings franchise has decided to offset that by adding a five percent surcharge to customers' bills and will reduce his employees' hours.
With Obamacare due to be fully implemented in January 2014, Metz has justified his move by claiming it is 'the only alternative. I've got to pass on the cost to the customer.'
The fast-food business owner is set to hold meetings at his restaurants in December where he will tell employees, 'that because of Obamacare, we are going to be cutting front-of-the-house employees to under 30 hours, effective immediately.'
