Despite being able to stay open for take-out orders, America’s restaurants were definitely affected bigly by the economic shutdown. But should they try to recoup some of their losses by up-charging customers?

That is the question.

And it’s a big one.

From New York Post:

The owners of a Missouri restaurant are pleading with people online to stop harassing their employees after a customer posted a photo of their receipt that showed she was charged a “Covid 19 surcharge” for a meal.

The tweet went viral, and Twitter users began hurling insults at the staff of the restaurant for the surcharge, the steakhouse wrote in a Facebook post.

They wrote that the surcharge was applied because of an increase in the price of meat and poultry because of the coronavirus outbreak.
