The worst fu*king idiots are in here. Servers DO NOT make under minimum wage, nobody makes under minimum wage in the United States, legally. You think Dennys', Chilis, and various companies are protected from doing so?
Despite not being held to a minimum wage, if you're tips do not make up the difference between such, you're employer MUST pay you. So in all , these bi*ches who handle your food are complaining for the simple fact, they want to make a low a.ss 10 bucks an hour, rather than minimum wage, get a fu*king life, do you're job.
The following is from the U.S. Dept. Of Labors web-site regarding wages for tipped employees.
A tipped employee engages in an occupation in which he or she customarily and regularly receives more than $30 per month in tips. An employer of a tipped employee is only required to pay $2.13 per hour in direct wages if that amount combined with the tips received at least equals the federal minimum wage. If the employee’s tips combined with the employer’s direct wages of at least $2.13 per hour do not equal the federal minimum hourly wage, the employer must make up the difference. Many states, however, require higher direct wage amounts for tipped employees.
I only tip at higher scale restaurants, service is actually good on Santana Row( my boy worked over there and would make 100 bucks easily a night on tips) , Castro , etc. Someone in dennys' , chilis, looks like they have a problem , we can have a problem. Get a fu*king education, step your life up instead of depending on tips to bump you're lack of skills and career worth up past minimum wage.
I can't believe the bi*chness in people minds, in order for me not ot get my food spit in or mistreated , I have to give you more money than you deserve(past minimum wage) , fu*k that, my food taste the same to me anyways, but if I ever get a sense, hear a local scandal, somebody will get fu*ked up over 10 bucks tips. Hows' that trade-off? Only a lowlife , broke , desperate fu*k sinks to those levels. Its' mexicans out here who'll break their backs for 2 bucks and a Jarrito.
