Overbearing Regulations Are Slowly Killing Restaurants



By Stephen Frank,  California Political News and Views

When you mandate an unsustainable minimum wage, you lose money.  When you mandate that schedules can not be set for tomorrow, they must be set—without change two weeks out- you lose money.  When government mandates times off and more, restaurants lose money.  Any wonder they are closing, or going to computers to order taking and payment?

“These are but a few examples of good and bad restaurant rules currently making the news. Others include legislation around restaurant worker pay in Connecticut, proposed alcohol deregulation in North Carolina that would benefit restaurants, a court ruling in a case that centered on whether a California law requires an employer to buy some employees’ shoes, a new law that allows Illinois residents to use SNAP (food stamp) benefits to buy fast food, and a proposed law in Michigan “that would ban the ban of plastic bags ban,” which has the support of the state restaurant association.”

Literally government controls the hiring, firing and working conditions for workers—with the owners taking the financial risk.  This is unsustainable.
