Top Adelaide restaurants staying shut during festive season over high wages

SOME of Adelaide's most popular restaurants and function centres will close their doors on Christmas and New Year's eves because of increased wage costs.

Traders say a State Government decision to create mandatory public holidays after 7pm on the two dates will hurt their businesses by forcing them to pay staff higher penalty rates.

A Sunday Mail survey of businesses across Adelaide found many would now remain closed rather than bear the burden of the costs.

Others will open this year but only because they had already taken bookings before the law came into effect in June.

Restaurant & Catering SA chief executive Sally Neville said 75 to 80 per cent of businesses she had spoken with would close for the public holidays.

How many people would go out for Xmas lunch/dinner at a restaurant? Is that the done thing? (I'm always over some family members house)

NYE would be a killer though but would have thought the increased charges for food and beverages would make up for the extra $30 an hour they are paying the staff.
