Red Robin will offset minimum
wage hikes by canning busboys

New York Post, by Lisa Fickenscher

Original Article

Posted By:Ribicon, 1/8/2018 11:00:37 PM

Orlando — Restaurant busboys, in line to earn a little more dough this year as minimum wage hikes hit across the country, are instead losing their jobs as chains look to cut costs. One chain axing jobs is Red Robin, which hopes to save about $8 million this year by eliminating busboys at each of its 570 restaurants, the company said Monday. (Snip) The Colorado-based chain already eliminated so-called expediters — who plate the food in the kitchen — and realized a cost savings of nearly $10 million last year, it said. “We need to do that to address the

The liberal reverse Midas touch strikes again. Government forces an increase in labor costs and companies cut back on labor? What strange forces could possibly explain this effect?

The purpose of raising the minimum wage is not to help those making it. Those claiming it is are being deceitful.
Skilled labor, like myself, are worth a multiple of unskilled labor. In my case, I am worth just short of 8 times that of an unskilled worker. That means that for every $1 an unskilled worker gets in the way of an increase yields over $7 for me.
That is why the unions push this crap (I am not a union member), it is a way to get raises for their members.
This is short sighted thinking based on greed.

...can´t fault them for wanting to cut costs. Labor in food service is a major expense. Here in the northwest, Seattle with great foresight increased min wage to $15 and low behold, small independents were driven to close and fire folks...

...expecting food servers to bus and set their own tables will be interesting. Like some, places, the next thing will be introducing little table tables so you can order on your own as the "food servers" run around with food...

The dead Robin will have the customers bus their own dishes, pick up their plates, glasses etc, get their food from the counter where they order it

In the past there were no busboys in hamburger restaurants. Will they be missed. I’d rather have those “expediters” in the kitchen so the food comes to the table while it is hot.

Red Robin already shows the effects of cuts. Service is slow, food prep is slow, and I´ve stopped patronizing our local store. It´s not like the food is a bargain, either. I can buy a 6 oz. steak lunch with salad, hot bread and potato for less than the price of a Red Robin burger with fries.

Bottom line is not the minimum wage, but whether your product and its "experience" is ultimately worth the price that covers the overhead and provides profits. Somehow the steakhouse can provide me with a hot, tasty sirloin steak lunch, with great service, for about $2 less than RR can serve me a burger. Where are you going to lunch?

Raising the minimum wage is havin g so many negative repercussions: American culture is being coarsened as all the services once performed to help each patron/customer personally are being swept aside in this new do-it-yourself age. Thus, entry level jobs are lost, the work ethic is diminished, success is punished, etc., even as common courtesy, personal respect, generosity and time for kindness is being lost. Those who actually need a little extra consideration and simple kindnesses, senior citizens & etc., when they are, ´out and about,´ personal services which were once taken for granted throughout America seem to have nearly vanished. -More´s the pity.

Veterans Affairs chief of staff

Washington — The Department of Veterans Affairs says the agency’s chief of staff has stepped down after an investigation found she had doctored emails to justify Secretary David Shulkin’s wife accompanying him on a European trip at taxpayer expense. The internal investigation by the department’s inspector general found “serious derelictions” by Shulkin and his staff and urged administrative action against Chief of Staff Vivieca Wright Simpson. Veterans Affairs spokesman Curt Cashour says Simpson “elected to retire” and the VA is opening a formal investigation into her actions.

A third murder has been linked to a suspect who was arrested after a severed head was found near a Texas walking trail. Hector Acosta-Ojeda, 28, was indicted by Tarrant County grand jury in Texas on Thursday on three charges of capital murder. Acosta-Ojeda, from Fort Worth, Texas, was originally charged with the double murder of Erick Zelaya and his girlfriend Iris Chirinos, 17. He and Felipe Ortiz, 29, now face charges in the murder of Triston Algiene, whose body was found under a Fort Worth home on October 3. (Snip) The head was left with a note saying in Spanish

Japan accepted just 20 asylum seekers last year – despite a record 19,628 applications – drawing accusations that the country is unfairly closing its door on people in genuine need. Since 2010, Japan has granted work permits to asylum seekers with valid visas to work while their refugee claims were reviewed, a change the government says has fuelled a dramatic rise in “bogus” applications from people who are simply seeking work. (Snip) Recent changes indicate Japan is getting even tougher. In an attempt to reduce the number of applicants, the government last month started limiting the right to work only to

Albany, N.Y. — New York state would make it illegal for police officers to have sex with people in their custody under a proposal gaining momentum in Albany. The idea picked up the support of Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Wednesday, who said he’ll amend his state budget proposal to include language saying that people in police custody cannot legally give consent to engage in sexual activity. Current law bars sex between correctional officers and inmates, but it doesn’t apply to police and people in their custody. Cuomo, a Democrat, called that omission an “egregious loophole” that must be closed.

Retailers have removed at least 31 types of dog food mostly owned by Smucker´s after an investigation triggered by a canine who died of poisoning discovered they contained traces of a euthanasia drug used to put down other animals. Lab tests conducted by the Food and Drug Administration showed that many brands of dog food were found to have been contaminated with pentobarbital. Pentobarbital is a drug used to put down animals, including dogs, cats, and horses.

IRS still paying bonuses

The IRS is still paying bonuses to nearly 2,000 bad employees, including more than two dozen who were actual tax-cheats themselves, the agency’s inspector general said in a new report this week. The audit suggests the tax agency’s efforts to crack down on bonuses have not fully succeeded, according to the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration. IRS screening did stop more than 1,000 employees with tax problems from getting bonuses, but 1,962 employees with discipline problems — and 26 who had been found to have intentionally cheated on their tax returns — were still paid bonuses in 2016 and

New York — The flu vaccine is doing a poor job protecting older Americans and others against the bug that´s causing most illnesses. Preliminary figures released Thursday suggest the vaccine is 36 percent effective overall in preventing flu illness severe enough to send a patient to the doctor´s office. There´s only been one other time in the last decade when the flu vaccine did a worse job. Most illnesses this winter have been caused by a nasty kind of flu called Type A H3N2.

The Senate’s new immigration compromise not only grants legal status to illegal immigrants who came to the U.S. before, but creates a new future amnesty that would even protect illegal immigrants who managed to sneak into the U.S. over the next four months, experts said. Not only would the bill enshrine Obama-era deportation rules, protecting most of the current 11 million illegal immigrants from fear of removal, but it extends those same protections to any illegal immigrants who can jump the border between now and June 30. The Homeland Security Department said the plan “destroys” their ability to enforce immigration

Revelations that the FBI had been warned about Florida high school shooter Nikolaus Cruz fit an all-too-familiar pattern, in which apparent law enforcement errors have preceded mass murders. The FBI was warned about Cruz after he posted on YouTube saying he was going to become a “professional school shooter.” The agency said they couldn’t identify the user who made the threat, despite Cruz posting under his own name. Five months later, Cruz pulled the fire alarm at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School and began shooting his former classmates with his AR-15. Other mass shooters and terrorists were similarly on the FBI’s radar
