You followed your dream, worked, saved and opened a restaurant & bar. Your wait staff do great on tips but the govt orders you to up their..?

...wage, regardless. You can't afford to keep all of them. 

     How do you decide who to send packing and who to keep?

    Nice story.  But often times, waitstaff only make about $2,50 -$2.75 without tips, so doing great with tips is doubtful - as a general rule.

    Like every other business does.  Low person on the totem pole goes first.  Remember the days when seniority came with some perks? Perks like NOT being fired first after x number of yrs on the job?

    That is a tough one that many small business owners face on a regular basis. Especially when one already knows the ebb and flow of the seasons and such.

    Have a staff meeting and say, "Aren't you glad Trump is gone?"  Those who agree the most should be given pink slips.  Let them endure the consequences of their voting actions.

    Democrats will shut down that business and gloat about it. They are truly horrible.

  • I'd fire the Donnie-tards first because they are known thieves & cheats.

    I'd raise wages, eliminate tips, and keep all the serving staff like thousands of restaurants have already done.

    The Democrats will order them to shut down the business they worked so hard to build. They are truly heartless.
