The only problem is they get like $2.50 an hour and have to make it up in tips. So one or both will happen: 1. People will stop going to his restaurants where they're being gouged. 2. His waiters and waitresses will quit and go elsewhere ASAP. Either way, the market will correct this pretty quickly.

[/quote] You made a good point there... [/quote] [/quote] You are right, the market will adjust. The main point here I think is that Obamacare is having negative effects and will be a drag on an already weak economy. [/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.'
