I have been talking with the local resturant owners and managers. They are all quite aware or are making themselves aware of the coming rules, regs, and taxes. All have the same expectation, they will pass some costs on to the consumers. cut employee hours, and get out of insuring their employees and pay the penalty. Some, even chains, are already analyzing their peak hours and are thinking of shutting down each day during non-peak time periods like diners used to do. This, of course, means less jobs. If you include Cap and Trade enforced by the EPA which raises utility rates, some owners who are nearing retirement will just shut down altogether. This is the America you voted for, less jobs and less opportunity.
