New Trump Labor Rule Lets Trump Steal Servers’ Tips!

Good luck servers.

by Anonymousreply 312/06/2017

Thanks for posting that, OP. It was an interesting article (and by interesting, I mean infuriating).

What I found even more interesting (infuriating) was this related article from the same site. Today's article describes how employers, generally speaking, will now be able to pilfer their workers' tips. This one, from 2016, describes how Trump's own business has been doing that very thing for some time. Here's a quote:

[quote]“So what’s the big deal?” you might be saying. “Maybe people just weren’t tipping.” Except, they were. They were actually required to: Customers’ bills included a mandatory 22 percent service fee, of which Garcia and the other workers never saw a damn dime. So while customers thought the employees were being tipped well, nah, the luckless servers were getting hosed.

I’m not endorsing trump, but I’m a little confused that this is an issue.

When I was in college, I worked as a waiter earning $2.30/hr + tips. I had to give up 2% of my total sales (assumed to be 10% of my tips) to the manager to pay the bussers, bar tenders, food preppers, hostesses, etc. I think it’s being done already.

Yes indeed, we too use "cookies." Don't you just LOVE clicking on these things on every single site you visit? I know we do! You can thank the EU parliament for making everyone in the world click on these pointless things while changing absolutely nothing. If you are interested you can take a look at our privacy/terms or if you just want to see the damn site without all this bureaucratic nonsense, click ACCEPT and we'll set a dreaded cookie to make it go away. Otherwise, you'll just have to find some other site for your pointless bitchery needs.
