    If the min. wage goes up 5.00, I raise my rates 10.00.
    Its how things work.

    So you use it as an excuse to increase profits? It seems like your huge jump relative to the actual cost would cause a decline in sales...which would be the fault of your gouging and not the minimum wage hike.

    Im always less than the big guys, and Im better at what I do.
    They raise, I raise, and they always jump first.

    Thanks for caring.

    I'm more than happy to continue to avoid restaurants that are too poorly run to pay their staff a living wage. I'm sure canning their busboys will improve service and lead to a cleaner dining experience.

    Sounds like you are ok with gouging as long as it is the government doing it.
    What are attorney's hourly rates again?
    Thank God I don't know.

    That is the system in a nut shell, and the only way the Democrats can counter that is to
    destroy the system.....

    When they pass laws that require I pay more, then so does the customer.
    If they want to change the rates then stop voting for the Crooks who increase the
    costs.....

    I do the very same in my market place......

    And guess what whiny bitch.....you just further exposed yourself as a Fraud.....

    And when you provide a good service the customers will always pay the nuisance
    fees thrown in the road.

    So really you don't increase your prices 2x any labor increase. That would be counter-productive.

    My competition does, and I follow suit.
    I always let them go first.

    The business Im in has a way of rising easily with the tide.
    I wont eat the increase, I'll pass it on, and tack on another five rupees for the trouble.

    The consumers lose.
    Im paying more for everything as well.

    Socialists don't have businesses, but otherwise an excellent point.
