    elses backs.

    That fellow workers decide to give gifts to servers has nothing to do with a Bosses obligation to compensate the labor that generates their actual wealth.

    "A lot of restaurant  owners are bad at running restaurants" is not an excuse for supporting the exploitation of workers.  If we buy that argument, then we might as well let everyone from carpet cleaners to dog groomers to stiff their employees and refuse to pay them a fair wage.

    The restaurant industry is doing just fine in states that do not allowing this form of theft and abuse, btw.

    You and I do not agree that petty crooks have some of god-given right to steal where large crooks do not.

    You are as much my enemy as the Koch brothers.  Obviously, you cannot win without actual workers on your side, so like the Koch brothers you try to deceive and mislead and convince those you wish to harm that you share some sort of common cause with them.

      Your approach is obviously the way to go and affect positive change for workers and Mom and Pop small businesses.
