Parents angry at diner adding mandatory gratuities to kids' bills

- A diner in New Jersey is adding an 18 percent gratuity to the bills of kids who dine without their parents.

Wayne Hills Diner, on the Hamburg Turnpike in New Jersey, is located across the street from a middle school, and is often hit with groups of 20 to 30 kids at a time.

A lawyer for the diner said it’s not fair for the waiters and waitresses, who wait on these groups of children for up to one or two hours without receiving a tip afterward.

However, parents are not on board with the mandated gratuity.

"My daughter was coming to me, telling me that every time she and her friends went to the diner, they're being charged the gratuity," Melissa Desch told WCBS-TV. "And when I asked her why, she said [it's] because they're children." However, parents are not on board with the mandated gratuity.
