Corner Pockets under new ownership?

Post by JohnW » Fri Aug 09, 2013 11:41 am

That's the word on the street. Apparently there is also a new name. Shannanigans.

That is all.

my argument was that tips are a bonus a gratuity for excellent service not for owners to use as a i can pay you less as you are getting tips move. Thats when he gave me its the customers requirement to give tips to pay his staff.

Not that there is anything wrong with that.

wages should come out of the profits of a business, not as a additional charge on a bill.

It does. It's called minimum wage.

exactly but what i was complaining about was why wait staff should get a lower minimum wage than walmart just because they get tips. they should get the regular min wage as some waitresses and or waiters will get more tips and some will get less.

actually it is his decision, minimum wage is just the lowest a employer can pay, not a law that says its the highest a employer can pay. He could go above it and say I pay my staff a good wage so they don't have to count on tips.

A good waiter/waitress can make a killing on tips, more than their daily wage.

some places pool the tips, i think thats wrong. another thing thats wrong, i feel is that employers think they can use the law to their advantage and pay someone less just because they are making "good" tips.

Regardless, they can still make a good buck on tips. Maybe WalMart needs to put out tips jars?
