Also customers are stupid:

When asked about what will happen to businesses like his when minimum wage hikes go into effect in 12 different states this year, Degel said that consumers will get “insulted” and stop coming to his restaurants if he tries to raise prices to make up the difference in raising the minimum wage.

“They’re not educated, they don’t understand what’s happening,” he said of customers who get angry about price increases.

Damn them for not wanting to be waiters for his shitty steakhouse:

“They used to be servants,” he said of waiters in the past. “When I first opened years ago, people took great pride in being a servant. Today, they have a more sense of entitlement… the younger people, they’re not used to working. They’re starting later. They’re going to school, and then they don’t want to work.”
