  •  It doesn't work like that in NY (3+ / 0-)

    At least not in my part of the state.  I made $15-20 and hour all told.

    I always wondered why people said waiters were poor.  If that's the way it works in other places, I can see.

    There is truth on all sides. The question is how much.

      Call it what you will - service charge, gratuity, etc. - NY requires that it is paid out in full to the staff. There was a case about 5-6 years ago that clarified this and a number of NY restaurants, banquet halls, etc. had to pay up.
