    Diner Adds Mandatory 18 Percent teen tax

    https://www.msn.com/en-us/foodanddri...ids/ar-BBEPiYS

    A New Jersey diner that charges an 18 percent teen tax has thoroughly outraged at least one parent whose 11-year-old fell victim to it, thereby costing her an extra 90 cents. Wayne Hills Diner co-owner Peter Logos says his waitstaff were tired of local school kids hanging out all Friday night in packs of 20 or 30 and not tipping. He tells CBS New York that they started adding mandatory gratuity to the bills of younger customers they suspect might screw the restaurant over.

    But mad local mom Melissa Desch has launched a public campaign against this policy, telling at least two news stations that she recently visited Wayne Hills Diner on the same day as her daughter Bella Bellas milkshake got teen-taxed, while she was left to tip whatever percentage seemed more appropriate than 18 (not that she did; its just she couldve).

    Area students tell NBC 10, meanwhile, that they first noticed the addition at the start of football season. Several also say they dont mind. But Desch argues that its less about the amount than the principle; she describes it as unfairly targeting Wayne Hills teens.
    Dont take criticism from someone you wouldnt take advice from.

    She should take her principle to another restaurant.

    I agree with you in part.

    But suppose they made a black tax and charged blacks an extra percentage for being black.?

    See my point.? Not sure it is legal. Nor that it should be.

    Well if that owner paid his/her wait staff a decent $15/hr wage, they wouldn't need tips to survive on.

    So, it's okay to add gratuity to a large party, but not teenagers? Got it.

    LOL I keep thinking about Black Bike Week in Myrtle Beach, when they close the restaurants due to bad behavior and no tipping.
