[quote="Nutty_Professor"]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. [/quote]
He is not paying them less than minimum wage. He is paying what is legally required by law. It's up to the waitress to want to work there or not.
