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
Most servers I know make significantly more than other people with jobs requiring a comparable level of education... working at the wrong restaurant?
You are totally right... if you work in the right state The money to be made in non right to work states is great, hence the reason I did it throughout UG. Other states like AZ, ID and Texas (and the rest of the midwest ) do not have to pay a fair labor wage and hence they put too many servers on the floor meaning you dont get as many tables i.e. tips.
