So apparantly a certain radio station had a morning show about hospitality staff and tips.

I listened a bit while driving to work and from what I gathered, we have by far the worst restaurant owners in the world.

A lot of wait staff called in about this problem and actually i'm still shocked and appalled that this is happening.

In restaurants and bars now, owners will take 3% of the employees pay check of any amount of food and beverage they sell. So as a consumer, I pay $5 for a drink, and in terms, the waiter/bar tender who actually brought me that drink, pays 3% of that $5 that i just finished paying, from his/her own pocket, to pay for the drink she SERVED, not bought, no SERVED. So technically, this particular drink was just bought twice, by someone who bought it and drank it, and by someone who just served it.

It's not 3% of the tips they make, it's not 3% that will go towards paid vacation. No it's money that the restaurant or bar takes from employees for selling their drink. They base that on the amount of food and beverage they sell.

Now if that's not thievery and illegal, i have no idea what is!

Unbelievable!
