From a reader in the San Francisco area, I present you with the possible future of dining out in America:
This is a real picture from a restaurant bill after we had dinner……they have a 4% additional tax for health care that’s added on the bottom of all restaurant checks to pay for the restaurant worker’s health care. How insane is this?
Let me see if I have this straight. We may no longer be able to take the family out to dinner without paying a 4% surcharge to offset the cost of health care insurance for the chef or the waiter?
This is my first encounter with this type of thing, so please chime in if I have it wrong or if this is just a one-off thing that hardly exists.
Because if this is truly a sign of things to come…I’m at a loss for words. For now.
