Minnesota restaurant adds surcharge to bills to cover minimum wage increase

:bowdown:

http://www.vocativ.com/money/busines...-minimum-wage/

Quote:
Last week, Minnesota increased its minimum wage to $8 an hour, up from $7.25. Sure, that remains a relative pittance compared with, say, your average executive’s salary. Still, as each new state joins the growing list of ones that have decided to provide low-income workers with more livable pay, the national debate pitting workers’ rights against the economic stability of businesses heats up again.

After Minnesota’s minimum wage bump went into effect, however, one restaurant quickly devised a crafty workaround. The Oasis Café in Stillwater responded to the 75-cent increase by tacking a 35-cent minimum wage fee to its customers’ bills. Every single one of them. Look, it says so right there on the receipt:


Quote:
The restaurant told local news station WCCO that the charge was necessary to cover the extra $10,000 the new minimum wage increase would cost the business annually. Surely a boost in workers’ pay has to come from somewhere, the restaurant argued, and financial restructuring is necessary to cover costs.
