Two of my close family members have worked as servers. Both at popular upscale chain eateries. They have both told horror stories about the way they have been treated by customers. SERVERS WORK FOR FAR LESS THAN MIN. WAGE, THEY DEPEND ON TIPS FOR EARNINGS AND THEN THEY HAVE TO PAY TAXES FROM THOSE TIPS. THEY ARE ON THEIR FEET FOR UP TO 12 HRS PER DAY.
