Tokyo cafe owners are refusing to sell customers for the equivalent of ¥10 in Japan, and they are warning that customers may be “taken away from us.”
The cafes owners say they are not in a position to “accept” the money they are being offered.
It comes after the government announced that it is raising the price of a ticket to ¥10 from ¥6.
The government says that the hike in ticket prices has been necessary to raise funds for the government, as they are spending more on social programs.
The cost of a meal will be cut from ¥1,200 to ¥1.20.
The Tokyo cafes owners have been in the news recently for refusing to accept money from customers, saying they would rather sell food than people.
They have also been called out by Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, who has said that they have failed to provide enough funds to the country’s struggling economy.
They are now urging customers to boycott the Tokyo cafes, as many are offering their wares for less than the cost of an average Japanese meal.
The owners are calling the decision to sell food to the public a “disgusting act of corruption” and a “crimes against humanity.”
In an interview with the Japan Times, the owners of Tokyo cafes said that the move by the government will hurt their business, as their business is dependent on selling food.
They also said that there are only so many cafes left in Tokyo, and the government should be willing to lower the prices on food in order to fund the social programs that the government has put in place.
The owner of the Tokyo cafe, who asked to remain anonymous, said, “We have no choice but to continue selling food to customers for less.”
In addition to the increased ticket price, the government is also increasing the minimum wage to ¥9,200 from ¥7,400, and also is raising taxes for the country.
They will be raising the maximum age of retirement from 65 to 66 in 2020.
Some businesses, such as bars and restaurants, are planning to close their doors.
Japan’s Prime Minister, Shinzo Abe has promised that he will continue to boost the social safety net to keep the economy from going into a depression.
