The business isn't sustainable if you have to implement these practices

Still, it's the reality of the current situation. Of course, it would be ideal if prices stayed the same and no surcharge was applied. We're a long way away from "ideal", though. One or the other is going to happen, so wouldn't a surcharge be the better option overall?

No, an examination of the core business strategy is needed. Technology has progressed so it's always important to stay relevant with it. As it can save you tons of money, time, and falze effort

Legally surcharges are the same as raising prices. You are assuming restauraunts have to either have a percentage-based surcharge or increase prices by a fixed amount when they could have a fixed surcharge of $xx or raise it by xx% with that included in the price.

My thing is when I go to a restaurant and see the burger is $16 then I'm expecting to pay $16 + no more than $4-5 dollars in tax/tip. I use that info I use to determine if I want to spend the money it. Adding the surcharge afterwards, which varies between 5% and 20% doesn't allow me to make a decision about how to spend my money
