Wow the pay scheme where you guys live seems really dodgy :? If companies pulled stunts like that here in the UK they'd be in deep, deep shit.



and you can't discuss your pay with other co workers? What the eff is that all about? :shock:



Seriously some of the craziest employment scandals I've ever heard.

Yeah, we can't discuss it because then we'd find out that someone is making more than us.... and we'd want a raise. Seriously -- that's the reason.

Oh wow. I've read some seriously shady shit on here before such as staff in the food service industry don't need to be paid minimum wage as they make it up in tips, you can get easily fired, etc It is just scary to me. I know I complain a lot about my place of work but we have pretty solid employment laws here to protect employees from being taken advantage of in any way and I guess I should be thankful for that. I hope things get sorted for you.

Oh yeah... servers only make like $3 an hour because they get tips. I could never. because what if you only make $10 on a Tuesday night? $10 a day isn't paying my bills :lol:



It sucks...

That REALLY stumps. Always has. I worked as a server in CA for three years. STILL it wasn't enough. I was working to waitressing jobs as a lead and even then would only take home about $10 on some of my shifts. Thankfully hear we get min wage. It is a very tough job. Very. The money does not make up for it.
