The right to work states make it difficult for servers. There is no guarantee that the people you wait on will tip 15 to 20% yet they are calculating the "fair" wage based upon that assumption. Most of the time we recieve NO paycheck after a 80 hour pay period. In California (also Oregon and Washington) servers make the normal minimum wage, not this $2.13 crap. There are so many people out there who get tipped (hairdressers, nail techs, dog groomers, bellhops ect) and yet servers are shafted. Most servers are students and single mothers. Its out of control. Good thing I move back to Cali in less than a month huh
Could have been worse, you could have been a hostess. Or a bus...person.
This is serious stuff!! I need shopping money
Honestly, I have total respect for servers. They work MUCH harder than I do at my office job.
Just be sure to TIP your friendly server accordingly
PS- Man if Hastings could just let me know if I am in or not I wouldn't be playing around on LSD
