What to Do When A Restaurant Puts a Minimum-Wage Service Charge on Your Bill
Paul Constant

The economist in me wonder if the cost of labor hasn’t already calculated in the cost of food. However, I suspect that it already has been calculated into the food.

I also want to point out that this fee may encourage people to tip less because they count this fee as part of their tip.

In the Bay Area, some restraints such as Max’s opera cafe charge fees like this. But I complained to management and had the fee removed. Paul Constant
