>Newlyweds can receive subsidies
日本为新婚夫妇发补贴
Newly married couples can receive up to 600,000 yen to cover their rent and other costs to start a new life from next April if they live in a municipality adopting Japan's newlywed support program, government sources said Sunday.
日本政府消息人士9月20日透露,居住在实施新婚补助计划的市町村的新婚夫妇,从2021年4月起可以获得最高60万日元(约合人民币3.9万元)的补贴来开启新生活,用以支付房租和其他费用。
To be eligible, both husband and wife will have to be under age 40 as of the registered date of marriage and have a combined income of less than 5.4 million yen, up from age 35 and 4.8 million yen under the current conditions for aid of up to 300,000 yen.
申请人需满足以下条件:夫妻双方在登记结婚之日须未满40岁,且家庭收入低于540万日元(约合人民币35万元)。新规较目前的新婚补助条件有所放宽,当前这两项条件分别为登记结婚当日须未满35岁,家庭收入低于480万日元,补助金额则为30万日元。
Only 281 municipalities, or 15% of all cities, towns and villages in Japan, had adopted the program as of July as they must shoulder half the expenses.
消息人士称,截至7月,日本国内实施该项目的有281个市町村,仅占所有市町村的15%左右,因为当地政府须承担一半的费用。
But to increase the number, the central government will bear two-thirds of the cost starting in fiscal year 2021, sources said.
消息人士称,为了提升该政策的覆盖率,中央政府将从2021财年起承担三分之二的费用。
The program is part of government efforts to address the low birth rate.
此项计划是日本政府为解决低出生率问题而推出的举措之一。

>Restaurants add COVID surcharge
纽约餐馆收'疫情恢复费'
New York City diners may soon see a COVID-19 surcharge on their bills as the restaurant industry continues to suffer due to the coronavirus pandemic.
由于新冠疫情,餐饮业的处境仍然艰难,纽约市的食客们可能很快就会在账单上看到一项新冠疫情附加费。
In a 46-2 vote, the New York City Council passed a bill on Sept 16 that would allow restaurants to charge as much as 10% to customers dining indoors or outdoors to help cover COVID-19 expenses.
纽约市议会上9月16日以46票赞成、2票反对通过了一项法案,允许餐馆向在室内或室外就餐的顾客收取最高10%的费用,以弥补餐馆在新冠疫情期间的损失。
Labeled as a "COVID-19 recovery charge," the surcharge does not add to the bill's overall tax, nor does it apply to delivery or takeout orders.
这项收费被称为"疫情恢复费",不计入账单的计税总额,也不适用于外卖和外带食物。
A restaurant implementing the surcharge is free to use the new funds however it likes, though it must also make it clear the surcharge is not a substitute for a tip or gratuity for waitstaff.
收取"疫情恢复费"的餐厅可自由支配这笔钱,但必须明确,这项收费不能替代给服务员的小费。
