commented on Businesses Share Some "Tips" on $15 Minimum Wage Debate
I just don't get why it's on the customer to ensure that customer service is good. Is a restaurant just a hangar with food on one side and customers on the other and then the customers contract out to some other folks to bring it to them while smiling?

• Angela Stowell of Ethan Stowell restaurants said they'd consider raising prices around 25 percent, meaning their average ticket of $94 would go up to $117, and they'd likely cut their $100,000 in annual charitable giving.
I like the former - it'd be nice to know what it costs for me to eat in a nice restaurant. Right now it's a price to eat and be in a space + a price for someone to help me.
The latter seems like straight-up hostage taking.
