We knew this was coming but that does not make the reality of it any easier to accept! Some restaurant chains in Florida are adding an Obamacare surcharge on customers’ bills. Let’s call it what it is – a tax!
The Gator Group’s full-time hourly employees won’t receive health insurance until December 2014. But the company said it implemented the surcharge now because of the compliance costs it’s facing ahead of the Affordable Care Act’s employer mandate kicking in 2015.
“Instead of raising prices on our products to generate the additional revenue needed to cover the costs of ACA compliance, certain Gator’s Dockside locations have implemented a 1% surcharge on all food and beverage purchases only” the Gator Group stated.
How soon before we see this across the country?
