    BUT BUT BUT Libtards laughed when Republicans said higher minimum wages will drive up food costs.

    Restaurant diners are footing the bill for rising minimum wages.

    In lieu of steep menu price increases, many independent and regional chain restaurants in states including Arizona, California, Colorado and New York are adding surcharges of 3% to 4% to help offset rising labor costs. Industry analysts expect the practice to become widespread as more cities and states increase minimum wages.

    “It’s the emerging new norm,” said Sharokina Shams, spokeswoman for the California Restaurant Association. She said California restaurants are adding surcharges as the state lifts the minimum wage every year until it reaches $15 an hour by 2023. It is currently at $10.50 an hour for employers with 26 or more workers.

    Not to worry, cellblock, you can always find work in your career as fast food server.

    The fact of the matter remains that the customer will pay more in order to help the fast food server earn more.

    /---- I'm retired, a published author with ever increasing royalty payments, rental property owner, Continuing Education instructor, work part time for the Board of Elections and a short term option trader. I have no plans on working at a fast food restaurant unless I open one up. I won't because I'd have to hire bone head millenniums with useless college majors like Woman Studies and try to motivate them to show up and put in a days work. No thank you.

    Of course you are. Then you don't mind paying more for fast food, if you eat it.

    If you are retired, why are you still working?
    Worthless degrees, like the one Mark Zuckerberg never got? You couldn't run a restaurant, it takes people with an open mind..Those people with worthless degrees are still humans...Even Though you think less of them..I bet there was a time you were young and dumb also...

    So? If you can afford to overpay for a bagful of crap now, you can certainly afford to pay an extra quarter for the same bag of crap.

    /---- Retired from full time work. Retired doesn't mean you sit around all day doing nothing. I'm now doing things I never had time to do when putting in 50 hours a week.Sorry I forgot you went to public school. In the future I'll dumb things down for you.
