How To Stay Safe Eating Out & Minimum Wage Truth | Jon Taffer | LIFESTYLE | Rubin Report

Dave Rubin of The Rubin Report talks to Jon Taffer (Host of Bar Rescue) about the future of restaurants, why you should accept no excuses with your business and the effect on restaurants of raising the minimum wage. Jon first discusses why so many bar owners fail. While many business owners blame factors out of their control, like COVID-19 or the recession, according to Jon the fault is always on them. Entrepreneurs need to find their motivation and instead look at this period of time as a great opportunity. If you are failing at your career or business, stop looking for excuses and look at what you could be doing differently. Jon also discusses how he got started in the restaurant business working at the Troubadour in Los Angeles. Jon talks about the future of the restaurant industry. He gives specifics about what you need to look for to know if the restaurant you’re eating out at is safe. He discusses the safety protocols that restaurants will need to implement to gain the trust of their customers. He also discusses the difficult choice restaurants must face concerning face masks and if they should mandate that customers wear masks. Jon gives his honest feelings about the dangers for small businesses when the minimum wage is raised. While many have pushed the “fight for 15” or a living wage for restaurant workers, Jon exposes what the reality is like for restaurants and how it hurts workers and potentially raises unemployment. Jon also discusses how there are great opportunities in the restaurant industry as restaurants go out of business and free up amazing locations.
