They could but that could decrease profits and decrease stock value which would anger the investors and cause them to switch cfo or ceo or some other multi million dollar position which they can’t

🤣🤣🤣 decrease the stock value.....as if all restaurants are corporate

It wouldn't decrease profits it would most likely increase them. Think about it if you force the restaurant to pay $20 an hour and the restaurant averages forty $12 burgers an hour, they do this with two servers both with 4 table sections and they were paying them $4 per hour. So that's an increase of $16 per hour X 2 = $32. Now that the owner has to come up with an additional $32 an hour just to maintain, do you think he adds a dollar to the burger, or do you think he only marks up the exact amount to cover the expense? We both know what happens here whether we agree with it or not.

Again this isn't a 1 restaurant thing if the government says they all have to pay it makes it much easier for them all to add a buck.

What makes you think restaurants don't raise prices whenever needed? Have you ordered chicken wings in the last 6 months?

The mistake most restaurants make when they need to increase profits is cutting. They cut down on staff and they also cut down on the quality of the product. This almost always ends up in a shitty restaurant.

If it were that easy for restaurants to just "increase profit" what in the world makes you think they wouldn't already be doing it?

This is what I was referring to

Nope, wrong again. You are an idiot.

First it's not "every single one of their employees" it's actually less than half.

What I said was in response to another post and I explained the math behind it.

Last I have the critical thinking skills to discuss this, you do not. I have been in this business a long time. You have likely been a moron since birth. Go cry to your comrades.

We'd appreciate it if you didn't use ableist slurs.
