    But in only one of them are they denied their legal wages.

      so even you are agreeing that this should be a crime?

        Denying people wages they agreed to work for after the fact is a crime.

        Asking people to punch out and work after the fact is a crime.

        Asking people to do non-tipped work on a tipped salary is a crime.

        "Wage theft" as commonly understood is a crime.

        Paying people minimum wage when they'd rather make more is not a crime.
