    wage, those that have to bridge the gap with tips. That too has to end. I have had to work as waitstaff, and it sucks. I don't mind the job itself, but getting paid 2.00 and hour plus tips in a greasy spoon doesn't get you much money at all.

    You can end up working round the clock just to get closer to making ends meet.

    I don't see how anyone can justify this. I would rather pay a little more for smaller portions of food, if that meant that the waitstaff made a living wage or at least minimum wage.
