What a joke ! The uptick in sales that is cited ($7,000) represents and improvement of .004 -- the fact is that the restaurants are all hurting for sales and the NUMBERS cited most likely include the Centene cafeteria's sales. Note that EVERY restaurant has raised its prices in the last year .... so these numbers include those price increases so the survey is skewed ! ! ! ! There are not more diners....
