Bro, during the 2 weeks I worked as a waiter, I witnessed my trainer collect a check for negative 15 cents. Your tips are taxed in addition to your server income (which is about $2/hr), and is literally the only money you collect in that job. In the US anyway, maybe your confusion is due to some antisocial Canadian customs I'm unfamiliar with.

Your tips were taxed? I'm not sure if they do that here. What is minimum wage there? I get the impression that American servers have it rougher than Canadian ones, but that's maybe just because I've never worked at that kind of job.

minimum wage varies by state but is usually about $7.50. thing is, regular minimum wage doesn't apply to waiters, so for them it's about $2 before taxes.

tips are taxed but no one reports them, so the restaurant instead assumes your tips based on a lowballed average. it's still usually more than enough to erase your hourly pay from income tax, though.

Maybe next time unions and workers rights come around you wont be so quick to dismiss them, people of the USA.

I'm pretty sure our laws here prohibit that kind of unfair treatment. I know that for unions, especially, Canada is more open to them. Poor working class Americans

Don't pity them, or else they'll never learn.

Maybe all you waiting staff should come to Australia, the minimum wage is $AU15.51 per hour here. That's big dollars.


God, that's all we need. Fat, lazy Americans taking all our jobs.

It's shitty the way this country treats servers, yes, but I prefer it here over anywhere else. That's pretty awesome that Australian servers make that kind of money, but you have to live in Australia. I can make a bill in five hours and be perfectly satisfied that I don't live in Australia.

Good thing we are both right where we want to be then, because I would sever limbs for the chance to live in this country.

Then again, I could also make thirty bucks in five hours.
