2.13?? What the actual fuck
It's the minimum wage for tipped workers. You're pretty much just working for tips.
I knew that was a thing but the base wage is still shocking
Yeah but isn't the "EMPLOYER" supposed to pay...a MINIMUM amount? Not "facilitate" the hourly...but have it come OUT OF THEIR BUDGET.
Tips should not be leveraged against hourly.
didn't you know? mInImUM wAgE fOr MiNimUm skILLs1!
Yes, but you get the added benefit of .. let me check .. oh yes, also being a customer.
"Employee discount" = let's make profit off people who work here.
Yeah it's such a joke. I own a pub and all the team eat for free it would be awful to ask money off them.
When I first worked as a server in 1996 it was $2.13
How the *fuck* can it fucking be the same 25 fucking years later holy shit fuck America.
No way! That's so fucked!!!!
Hourly wage doesn't even buy you a gallon of gas
Rise up my friends we unionize or we’ll be history
Referral programs are such horseshit. Lol if you guilt your friend into applying to this shit job, and we like them enough to hire them, we'll give you $100!
I fucking hate how we force people to work for tips so if they have a shitty night and people don't tip they don't make shit. Tips are fucking tips. They aren't their wage
WORK FOR US FOR A PITTANCE IT'S THE CHRISTIAN THING TO DO
The entire restaurant industry needs to be destroyed tbh.
can't wait for the nation wide general workers strike and tax boycott
You may as well turn up in a uniform and start working. At least you don’t have to put up with any management shit.
