kinda pissed tbh. I mean I guess it was good I had a pay increase for a month because I made more money that month…but now he comes and tells us hes cutting us back down to where we were pay-wise. hes taking 50% of our tips…but were actually getting a raise to 11$ an hour the new minimum wage. but it works out to get paid about what I was getting paid when I was hired.
Theres less incentive now to do a good delivery. He wanted to keep 50% to give us an incentive to do a good delivery. But now the customers are like “And $10 for you” i’m like “ughhh well $5 actually because 50% goes to my boss…sigh”. I dont say that but I dont really get excited about tips anymore. Its like getting some weak drugs. Just doesnt give you the high you wanted or expected.
Its not like im broke anymore on these wages, however, id rather get 100% of my tips and $8 an hour or something to make my job more interesting. It takes the fun out of the tipping game.
