I would have bet my life your dumb arse would show up and as always with nothing to offer except another idiot or clarifying question that you expect answered.

No one owes you an answer, you dunce. Isn't that right Mr. "Rokefeller", the grammar and spelling authority.

However back to the original topic - the wait staff is the largest group of employees in a restaurant.  The cost to the owner to move that team to regular minimum seems that it would be burdensome and a lot of menu pricing would need to take place.....


Mr. Rokefeller- haven't the restaurant owners done a good job with the burden of sheltered income? It doesn't seem to bother them--  Let's say a single unit buys $300K per year from the major two broadline distributors--the restaurant owner pays an additional $60K per year in the cost of food/paper/chemicals just to cover the monthly VIG for the industry's consolidation.

$60,000.00 / $5.00 = 12,000 hours? 

And for the Food Blogger that posed the question of higher wages-- these answers (questions) and concerns from the likes of Mr. Rokefeller demonstrate exactly what I wrote--- if the money is generated by unregulated private financiers stealing it out of the living standards of American's it's just fine with the Rokefellers, but if it is a raise in minimum wage for the restaurant workers then "oh my the staff is the largest group of employees in the restaurant. The cost to the owner would be burdensome. Mr. Rokefeller forgets all about all the funny money hidden cash embedded in the products sold and distributed to these same poor restaurant owners, and he has no problem what so ever with organized crime running the industry.
