In January the San Francisco Health Care Security Ordinance went into affect. Now, all for-profit employers with more than 20 workers have to offer health insurance to their employees or pay a fee to the city.

This ordinance hit many city restaurants especially hard, since most hadn’t offered health insurance before. I spoke to customers, waitresses and managers to see how the ordinance has changed things.
