Let me just say…..AHAHAHAHAAHAHAAH!
A restaurant that declared it would charge men 18% more than women for the same service will close its doors at the end of the month.
As the Sydney Morning Herald reported in 2017, when Handsome Her made headlines for its charge-men-more policy, the café posted a chalkboard outside with three rules:
House Rules, Rule #1: women have priority seating. Rule #2: men will be charged an 18% premium to reflect the gender pay gap (2016) which is donated to a women’s service. Rule #3 respect goes both ways.
The owners’policy of charging men more than women apparently only applied one weekend a month and to be fair, restaurants close for all sorts of reasons. That being said, when you bend over backward to let half the population know it’s not welcome in your restaurant, it’s no surprise when your restaurant flops. As for me? I’m glad their restaurant crashed and burned and I wish them nothing but failure in their future business endeavors.
