Travelers passing through the Oakland Airport may be in for a surprise when they get their meal or drink receipts – a surcharge for employees’ health benefits. The Oakland Airport authority decided to allow an additional surcharge to be added to patrons’ bills – not unlike the Obamacare surcharge restaurants in Florida and L.A. are charging.
“A 2% Airport Health Benefits Surcharge will apply to all pre-tax food and beverage purchases,” a sign says on one eatery. The receipt in the photo shows a charge for “2% Health SC.”
Acting on a tip that vendors were levying the charge, CNSNews.com reached out to the airport for comment on when the surcharge was instituted, and why.
Scott Wintner, Senior Marketing and Communications representative for the airport, acknowledged that the surcharges are added by concessionaire, but said he could not comment on when the charge started.
