Another hidden ObamaCare tax
The poor consumer almost choked on the breakfast croissant he purchased at the Oakland Airport.
The reason for his consternation: a 2 percent hidden tax he did not expect.
It said, “EmpBen_Srchg” and it came to 12 cents, or about 2 percent of his bill.
“I interpret this to be employee benefit surcharge, so I asked Oakland Airport.”
“The Port of Oakland agreed to permit its concessionaires to add a surcharge of up to two percent on guest checks to cover the cost of providing medical benefits to its employees,” Joanne Holloway, an airport spokeswoman, explained. “The businesses are required to post notification of this charge on its menu boards and on the guest receipt.”
