CA Diners Receive Bill For Meal, Charged ‘Extra’ Fee After Wage Increase

Julian Gallardo was enjoying a meal at Sammy’s Woodfired Pizza in San Diego, California, and he was outraged when he checked out his bill.

He spotted a new rare charge on the receipt for something extra without being explained. The bill included an additional charge that he wasn’t warned about that before.

The restaurant decided to charge him an extra $3 because of the increase in California’s minimum wage.

The extra charge wasn’t mentioned by the staff beforehand, and it cast a shadow on his night.

Even though it may not seem too much to be charged an additional $e, he felt tricked about the addon.

They should have told us prior to order, or put a sign out saying that they are charging extra, said Julian.

This has been put to help offset the cost of additional expenses after the minimum wage hike.

According to the California Department of Industrial Relations, the minimum wage is undergoing a rise until it reaches $15 per hour.

But now business owners are shifting the cost of it to the consumers.

Now customers are being accustomed to the new surcharge and this is being common in other restaurants in California.

Julian had to pay the extra charge even though he wasn’t informed about it. What do you think about that? How would you react to this addon?
