Gee, thanks Obamacare, now none of us can afford to eat out anymore11/15/2012
Going out to eat may become more expensive as restaurant chains prepare to implement Obamacare in January 2014. First Papa John's raised the price of its pizzas to pay for health care costs; now Florida-based restaurant owner John Metz says he will add a 5 percent surcharge to his customers' bills. Metz, who runs approximately 40 Denny's and the Hurricane Grill & Wings franchise, will also reduce his employees' hours, as Obamacare mandates that employees working a minimum of 30 hours per week must be covered by their employers. Metz claims, "I've got to pass on the cost to the customer." What's next, a surcharge on our napkins? [Source]
