Waiters can no longer afford to live in San Fran

The housing market in San Francisco is so expensive that it’s commonly referred to as being in a crisis.

Restaurant workers are fleeing the city’s unmanageable costs, The Guardian reported, and it’s changing the way the industry is serving customers.

Some restaurants are having customers order at a counter instead of being waited on at a table and are simplifying their menus to decrease the size of their waitstaff.

The problem isn’t unique to the Bay Area: Restaurants in cities like New York City and Washington have encountered similar staffing issues.
