The Oasis restaurant claims that the $0.35 charge to the customers bill is to offset the cost of an increased minimum wage for tipped employees. The restaurant owners claim that the new pay increase is costing them more than $10,000 a year.

The owners go on to tell the CBS news station in Minnesota that “if the state would pass a tip credit, like 43 other states have done, than there would be no issue at all”.… Full Story

While I don’t want to brag, I have to say that I consider myself to be a coffee aficionado of sorts and while I adore coffee at anytime of year, I especially enjoy trying all of the new iced coffee drinks when summertime rolls around.

However, what I don’t enjoy is going out to the local coffeehouse and having to wait in exceptionally long lines, as frantic baristas scramble around yelling out names and throw drinks together to move customers in and out more quickly. And then of course there is always that one person (who happens to always be in line in front of me) who has the most complicated and drawn out coffee order on the planet!… Full Story
