This old goat would not eat there!!  I have a problem with people that take tips for hard working people, let alone a sure charge.   If you need more money raise the prices.   If you charge 10$ or 20$ for a stake and if that's what I would like, I have no problems paying for my choice.

Sacramento restaurants solved the problem of increased labor costs inflicted on them from California’s rising minimum wage by taking a portion of the waiters tips.

Expect this trend to continue throughout California as the minimum wage gradually increases statewide. In Los Angeles minimum wage ascends to $15 an hour in January 2020.

Already in San Francisco and Seattle many restaurants are going tip free. Instead an additional surcharge is being added to the bill from which restaurants take a portion and pay a portion to the food server.

Then restaurants are surprised when they ask to go unions.  :sad:

Absolutely. The owners show no courage, but they are probably libs also. I would think the proper way to handle it is to increase cost to the market and place on the menu the increase is due to the increase in minimum wage. Put the onus back on the politicians that passed this. It is an educational issue for liberals which they will probably ignore.

No names just said San Francisco and Seattle.  It's not nice to point fingers.   :lol:

So this had nothing to do with the video from a Sac news station?
