Restaurants in Texas now adding "surcharges" to bills for health care, pto, ect.
A few restaurants in Austin, Texas, are the latest to ask diners to chip in a little extra for the sake of their employees’ health and well-being.

Foreign & Domestic, in Austin’s North Loop, and Hoover’s Cooking, in Cherrywood, have recently added surcharges to patrons’ checks to help cover the cost of health insurance and paid sick leave, respectively.

Foreign & Domestic’s optional 3 percent surcharge was added to each bill after co-owners Sarah Heard and Nathan Lemley started providing “great” health insurance for employees as of Jan. 1, but patrons can request to decline the charge — though Heard told Fox News that most diners haven’t.

Ignoring my stance on tipping, why the hell should I (as a diner) pay for YOUR employees pto, vacation and healthcare. Raise the food cost if that's what it takes but to add a surcharge on my meal, socialist.

Hoover’s Cooking, meanwhile, institutes a mandatory $1 “community value contribution,”

The hell is this crap?
Community value contribution. This isn't China you commies. This socialist crap will destroy this country.

I used to work in restaurants (for about 20 years). It comes with the territory that you don't get PTO, paid sick time and in most cases, health insurance. Why the hell should I pay for something the company WANTS to offer. A lot of jobs don't have PTO or paid sick time. You miss day of work-YOU DON'T GET PAID. Sick or not. When did it become a thing that people have some kind of right to get paid when they don't work? I don't get it. Yeah you're sick and you didn't make yourself sick but it's still a business and if you aren't there they should have to pay you. Period.

Also, the company you work for didn't make you get pregnant. Sorry but you shouldn't be able to take 6 months off and come back to your job. You shouldn't get any short term disability for your maternity leave either. You also shouldn't be getting paid for your maternity leave.
No one made you have a kid. Deal with it. It's called life.

If they can cook a steak the way I like it, medium to well done, ie cooked through properly then I am happy to pay it.

Would you be happy to tip the cook or just the waiter who took the order? Cooks get no tips and yet they are the ones making the food. Servers take your order, runners bring the food and then the server gives you your check. No where along that line does the cook get credit or tipped.

I'm sure cooks get paid more than servers, which is why they don't get tips.

They do and they also do a lot more work than servers. They come in early and prep the kitchen which includes prepping food, setting up the front and back of the food line.
