Restaurant Adding Obamacare Surcharge To Every Order?
Description:The owners of Republique added something new to the menu recently; a 3 percent surcharge to every bill to cover employee healthcare costs under Obamacare. The added fee was getting mixed reactions from customers at the Hancock Park restaurant. Some voiced their complaints on Yelp. “We spent $150 for two of us and you want me to pay an extra 3%. Because I can afford to eat here then I should be able to afford that fee? Absurd,” one customer wrote.(1:30)
