Stop lying if you dont make a certain amount of tips the job has to reimburse you for the amount of hours you work at a rate higher than minimum wage.
I dont see how its legal to have to pay the salary of a worker just for visiting that store, i didnt get tipped for helping people in a shoe store,while smelling they funky a.ss feet all day.
I only tip a lot if i like the waiter or they do they job without being a as*hole, i dont give a fu*k about youre personal situation at all.
If you bring a n*gga a bottle of 150,000 wine do you really expect a 5 to 10,000 dollar tip just for being there, you should be happy with 50-100 dollars they dont owe you sh*t begging a.ss people.
It's been years since I waited tables, but we were automatically taxed as if we were tipped 10% of our sales. I worked at a restaurant that the average meal costs $20. The average guests per table was 3. On a average night, I would serve 10 tables. On average I worked 7 hours per shift.
3 guests/table x $20 /meal = $60 sales/table x 10% = $6/table x 10 tables = $60. They then add $2.13/hour x 7 hours = $14.91. $60 + $14.91 = $74.91. If you divide $74.91 by 7 hours you get $10.70 per hour, which is more than minimum wage, so the employer doesn't have to reimburse anything. Even if I wasn't tipped 10% I was taxed at least 10%. And if the tips were on a credit card(which is more times than not) and more than 10%, they taxed the entire amount.
And you didn't get tipped working at a shoe store, because that isn't the nature of the business. You get the same rate of pay if you sell 1 pair of shoes or you sell 100 pair of shoes. The retail industry and hospitality industry are not the same.
