PAY: That’s not fair

| October 22, 2021 1:00 AM

“I pay well.” To the owner of Gathered, $8 per hour is not “paying well!” Walmart pays better than that; even Arby’s pays $14.

The food servers rely on tips and if they don’t get the tips, they can’t pay rent, utilities or food bills. We always tip generously because we know servers are paid very paltry wages.

You can tell which restaurants pay a fair wage and those that don’t. We went for breakfast recently and were unable to even find a parking spot at our favorite place, so we drove down the road and found a parking lot almost empty! One server for the whole place, then the cook had to come out of the kitchen to help, then go back to cooking in-between.
